Argumentation 4 (1):35-52 (1990)

Rhetoric and dialectic are two distinct circles, but in intersection. Rhetoric is an application (among others) of the dialectic to public debates. The dialectic is then the intellectual tool of rhetoric, distinct from its emotive means of persuading. But each of them can be antistrophos to the other one because both of them belong to the same “sublunar world”, our world. Such is Aristotle's answer, both to the sophists and to Plato
