Gorgias (/ ˈ ɡ ɔːr ɡ i ə s /; Greek: Γοργίας [ɡorɡíaːs]) is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato around BC. The dialogue depicts a conversation between Socrates and a small group of sophists (and other guests) at a dinner gathering.

Socrates debates with the sophist seeking the true definition of rhetoric, attempting to pinpoint the essence of rhetoric and unveil the flaws.

Reading this in a yellowed library book, with edges of the pages flaking off and falling into my lap as I read, Gorgias made a strong argument, more unintentionally than intentionally, for the uselessness of rhetoric.

The struggle which Plato has Socrates recommend to his interlocutors in Gorgias - and to his readers - is the struggle to overcome the temptations of worldly success and to concentrate on genuine morality.

Ostensibly an enquiry into the value of rhetoric, the dialogue soon becomes aninvestigation into the value of these two contrasting ways of life.5/5(1). When Socrates endeavors to question Gorgias about rhetoric, their discussion turns into an exposition of arguments between Socrates, Gorgias, and Polus.

While defining rhetoric, Socrates provokes discussion as to the nature, influence, and practice of rhetoric. In the debate various moral, philosophical, and spiritual issues are raised. It is a work likely completed around the time of "Republic" and illuminates many of the spiritual ideas of Plato.

The spirituality, as Jowett points out in his wonderful introduction, has many ideas akin to Christianity, but is more generous as it reserves damnation only for the tyrants of the world.

The Crito, Laches, Lysis, Charmides, Euthyphro, Hippias Minor and Major, Protagoras, Gorgias and Ion, were probably written throughout this twelve year period as well, some of them, like the Protagoras and Gorgias, most likely at its end. One of Plato's most widely read dialogues, Gorgias treats the temptations of worldly success and the rewards of the genuinely moral life.

Appealing to philosophers as a classic text of moral philosophy--and to everyone for its vividness, clarity, and occassional bitter humor--this new translation is accompanied by explanatory notes and an illuminating and accessible introduction.5/5(5). The Gorgias concerns, among other things, rhetoric: what it is and its value to the city, in other words, its political, practical, and moral value, especially in contrast with the Gorgias makes for an excellent place to begin, as it introduces key questions having to do with what persuasion is, how it works, and what it's good for.
