Descrizione
Contains Cicero' s De Oratore and Brutus, influential sources over the centuries for ideas on rhetoric and train-ing for public leadership. The De Oratore, written in 55 B.C., argues that rhetoric is socially significant because states are established and main-tained through the leadership of eloquent men. The three books of dialogues in this volume feature discussions between well-known figures in Roman history, in-cluding Lucius Crassus, Marcus An-tonius, Quintus Lutatius Catulus, Quin-tus Marcius Scaevola, Caius Aurelius Cotta, Julius Caesar Strabo Vopicus, and Publius Sulpicus Rufus. The Brutus continues the theme of the dialogues, giving a history of eminent orators whose performances exemplify the Ciceronian theory that rhetoric final-ly adds up to leadership.
