Parmênides vs. Górgias: uma polêmica sobre a linguagem

Daniel Rossi Nunes Lopes

Resumo


This article intends to show the querrel between Gorgias and Parmenides about the possibility of the ontologic speech. The gorgian treatise On Non-being or On Nature presents itself, in this perspective, as refutation of the "parmenidian triad" being, thinking and saying, expressed in the Poem. Gorgias intends to prove that the speech concerning being, wich Parmenides considers the only possible and true, is inconsistent, both sintaticly and semanticly. Denying the possibility of an ontologic speech, Gorgias atributes then a central function to rhetoric in the theory of speech.
