That the Athenian polis decided issues by collective decision after open debate was a point of pride to proponents of the radical democracy. To critics of the democracy, as we will see, this was its essential weakness. Thucydides’ The Peloponnesian War is a unique source in its portrayal of the functioning of the Athenian democracy during a major war that lasted almost thirty years. Though later writers, such as Xenophon, describe the period after the Peloponnesian War, no other Greek author subjects the historical process of political decisionmaking in Athens to such sustained and intense scrutiny.

It is true that in Phaedrus Plato seems to envision a legitimate place for a philosophically informed art of ‘‘true’’ rhetoric. He appears to concede in the later part of the dialogue that, properly conceived, oratory can hope to be a useful handmaiden to philosophy. What he does not concede, however, is that this ‘‘true’’ rhetoric would be employed for deliberative purposes in public debate.
