Abstract:

This book reconstructs the tradition of dialectic from Aristotle's
Topics, its founding text, up to its "renaissance" in 16th century
Italy, and focuses on the role of dialectic in the production of knowledge.
Aristotle defines dialectic as a structured exchange of questions and answers
and thus links it to dialogue and disputation, while Cicero develops a mildly
skeptical version of dialectic, identifies it with reasoning in utramque
partem
and connects it closely to rhetoric. These two interpretations
constitute the backbone of the living tradition of dialectic and are variously
developed in the Renaissance against the Medieval background. The book
scrutinizes three separate contexts in which these developments occur:
Rudolph Agricola's attempt to develop a new dialectic in close connection
with rhetoric, Agostino Nifo's thoroughly Aristotelian approach and its use of
the newly translated commentaries of Alexander of Aphrodisias and
Averroes, and Carlo Sigonio's literary theory of the dialogue form, which is
centered around Aristotle's Topics.

Today, Aristotelian dialectic enjoys a new life within argumentation theory:
the final chapter of the book briefly revisits these contemporary
developments and draws some general epistemological conclusions linking
the tradition of dialectic to a fallibilist view of knowledge.
