Il problema della persuasione in Agostino d'lppona

Maurizio Manzin
University of Trento
A study on the nature of persuasive discourse in St.Augustine's philosophy, aiming at showing that in Augustine's thought an argumentation finalized to be effective must be truth-oriented. In this sense (dating back to Aristotle) a true persuasion, or to say better rhetoric, is completely different from sophistic, which is finalized to persuade without any search for truth.
