The essay stresses the fundamental role of ancient Greek philosophy for argumentative studies, particularly in their linguistic dimension. Starting from this perspective the Aristotelian notion of logos is antithetic to that of 'linguistic code' as illustrated by Ferdinand de Saussure and Noam Chomsky. Furthermore it becomes clear how different and opposite theories on argumentation arise if you choose as a starting point the former or the latter.

Abstract

The essay stresses the fundamental role of ancient Greek philosophy for argumentative studies, particularly in their linguistic dimension. Starting from this perspective the Aristotelian notion of logos is antithetic to that of 'linguistic code' as illustrated by Ferdinand de Saussure and Noam Chomsky. Furthermore it becomes clear how different and opposite theories on argumentation arise if you choose as a starting point the former or the latter.
