Indeed, the reader of the Topics, who—by references at the beginning of that treatise—may have been tantalized to hear something on that very topic and become more and more frustrated as he turned the pages, will welcome a systematic exposition of that subject, which this new volume now happily provides. As in the Topics, the context the author has in view is that of the Athenian Academic Debate Discussion, Dialogue , which makes the book somewhat restricted in scope. However, much of what he has to say can be extrapolated or adapted to other contexts of discussion. Even though the dialectical procedures of Athenian Academic Debates may be familiar to many Moraux ; Slomkowski , it will be useful to start by providing a short outline of them. The review ends with a discussion of a number of topics that illustrate both the difficulty and the inspirational value of the book.
