SILVA, Markus Figueira da. Seduction and persuasion: the "delicious" dangers of sophistic. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2004, vol.24, n.64, pp. 321-328. ISSN 0101-3262.

This paper updates a polemic that goes through the relations between philosophy and education, since the encounter among Plato and the sophists: Is it the virtue that has to be taught? Is it politics? Is it rhetoric? The thesis defended here is that the current dominion of the ignorance and the utility is a result of the regrettable result of the triumph from the ideals of the sophists over the platonic ones.

Keywords : Plato; Sophists; Philosophy; Education.
