Example text

He pointed out that language makes it possible for people to conceive of differences and to make distinctions like man/woman or good/bad. It also allows them to conceive of abstractions like justice or reality. The Greek notion of logos was later translated into Latin as ratio (reason), and in Western thought the powers that were once attributed to language became associated with thinking rather than with talking or writing. Cicero blamed the philosophers for this shift: [Socrates] separated the science of wise thinking from that of elegant speaking, though in reality they are closely Linked together....

While he was active in Roman politics, Cicero gave many speeches and managed as well to write works on literature, philosophy, and rhetorical theory. Cicero's politics were unrelentingly republican, which means that he supported the power of the Senate on all issues. Hence he was able to forge only temporary alliances with the succession of powerful generals who wanted to turn Rome into an empire, and it was inevitable that he would sooner or later run afoul of some powerful pretender to the title of emperor.

The reason/emotion distinction also keeps us from realizing how often we are swayed by appeals to our emotions or, more accurately, how difficult it is to distinguish between a purely rational appeal and a purely emotional one. And the notion of the unique individual makes it difficult for us to see how many of our opinions are borrowed from the beliefs that we share with other members of our communities. Ancient teachers of rhetoric believed that rhetorical reasoning, which is used in politics, journalism, religious argument, literature, philosophy, history, and law—to name just a few of its arenas—is fully as legitimate as that used in any other field.
