Indeed, the fact of trying to derive a thesis or its opposite from suitable ‘endoxa’ which have been conceded to by an opponent in 21 22 The Art of Dialectic between Dialogue and Rhetoric a debate may be an important condition for reaching the truth. 46 The fourth use of dialectic described by Aristotle adds a layer of complication to the explanation of the relationship between dialectic and knowledge. Aristotle writes in the same chapter: Further (‘eti de’) it [dialectic] is useful in connection with the first principles (‘ta prōta’) of each science (‘epistēmē’): for it is impossible to discuss them [the principles of each science] at all on the basis of the principles peculiar to the science in question, since the principles are primary in relation to everything else, and it is necessary to deal with them through (‘dia’) the generally accepted opinions (‘endoxa’) on each point.

Aristotle and the art of dialectic (Aristotle 1958). This rather neutral rendition of the ‘topoi’, though, does not square easily with their somewhat complex and cognitively more determinate structure. e. for invention, and for justifying conclusions. Thus, through the ‘topoi’ dialectic is historically related to the rich notion of invention, which is relevant for understanding the function of both rhetorical and dialectical arguments. 1 Rhetorical and dialectical invention ‘Euresis’, the Greek term for ‘inventio’, is not a common Aristotelian term67 but later became a commonplace in the Latin tripartition of rhetoric: invention, disposition and enunciation.

The second use, conversation or dialectical encounters with a representative member of common people (‘oi polloi’), squares well with the definition of dialectic we have discussed. Here, Aristotle spells out the usefulness of these dialectical conversations, namely that “we shall be able to deal with people on the basis of their own opinions and not those of others” (101a31–32). This will turn out to be crucial “when we shall want to persuade them to give up assertions which will seem to us openly unacceptable” (101a33–34).
