Political Labels: Are they meaningful - Or are they just political swear words?Views: 126

Hello Thomas

You are quite correct.

The sophists were (ultimately) famous/notorious for being agnostic about "truth". Their claimed expertise was how to make "the weaker argument appear the stronger".

They became the first professional lawyers. Their skill in building apparently strong cases out of nothing led to disrepute in the public mind. Hence the modern meaning of the world sophism.

Thomas and anyone else who's interested: Join the Wiki.
Edit anything that needs to be changed.
