Unformatted text preview: understand an important term concerning a sophist, such as "nomos," for example, you should read part, or all, of the chapter on "The Nomos/Physis Dichotomy." You will find the Sprague translation of THE SOPHISTS a useful resource for the sophistic fragments. Kennedy's RHETORIC AND ITS SECULAR AND CHRISTIAN TRADITIONS will provide a useful overview of the sophists. The paper is not intended to be more than a short report. The purpose of the paper is to give you a sense of what sophism was and how individual sophists differ from other sophists. I am more interested in your studying the map than arriving at the destination in record time. A bit of meandering through and exploration of the available material on the sophists will help you understand the lecture material. The process is as, or more, important than the product.
