  1. Adeia in Fifth-Century Athens.Alberto Esu - 2021 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 141:153-178.
    This article discusses the rationale of adeia in the fifth-century Athenian legal system. It argues that adeia was designed to grant a temporary suspension of the effect of a law in exceptional circumstances without allowing for any permanent legal change. This article explores the origin of adeia and the relevant ideology underpinning the legal procedure. It provides a comprehensive reconstruction of the legal procedure and analyses the extensive use of adeia for collecting information during the investigation of the profanation of (...)

  • Is the Enthymeme a Syllogism?James Fredal - 2018 - Philosophy and Rhetoric 51 (1):24-49.
    For several millennia now, the enthymeme has been taught, on the putative authority of Aristotle, as "a kind of syllogism" —that is, a rhetorical syllogism—that consists in a three-part unit of deductive reasoning that parallels the inductive reasoning of the example. The rhetorical syllogism is said to be imperfect or incomplete because it relies on probable or particular rather than certain or universal premises and because the speaker suppresses one premise or the conclusion, usually the major premise, leaving it with (...)

  • Proof-Reading Aristotle’s Rhetoric.Jamie Dow - 2014 - Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 96 (1):1-37.

  • Die Rhetorica ad Alexandrum und die attischen Redner: Politische Differenzierung und praktische Rhetorik im Griechenland des 4. Jhd. v. Chr. [REVIEW]Karen Piepenbrink - 2021 - Klio 103 (2):436-462.
    Zusammenfassung Die Rhetorica ad Alexandrum gilt allgemein als ausnehmend praxisorientierte rhetorische Schrift. Im Unterschied zur bisherigen Forschung sucht der Beitrag zu zeigen, dass ihr Praxisbezug nicht vorrangig am zeitgenössischen Athen orientiert ist, sondern eher am Typus einer gemäßigt demokratisch verfassten Polis. Entsprechend vermag die Schrift uns wichtige Hinweise auf die rhetorische Praxis gerade auch außerhalb Athens zu geben.
