Abstract

This thesis presents a close textual reading of Plato's Gorgias. It is intended to demonstrate a way of reading dialogues as well as an argument arising from this particular one. It contends that the form of the work provides an important clue in understanding the observations about political philosophy which the Gorgias presents and that the dialogue is intended as a demonstration of how rhetoric should be used.
