Dispute: P. and V. ἀγών, ὁ, ἔρις, ἡ, ἅμιλλα, ἡ, P. ἀμφισβήτησις, ἡ; see quarrel.

Arguments, reasonings: P. and V. ἐνθυμήματα, τά.

Case put forward: P. and V. λόγος, ὁ.

Plot, story: P. σύστασις, ἡ (Arist.).

Let us see whether Nicias thinks he is making a point, and whether he is not speaking thus for the sake of argument: P. ὁρῶμεν μὴ Νικιας οἴεταί τι λέγειν καὶ οὐ λόγου ἕνεκα ταῦτα λέγει (Plat., Laches. 196C).

Dutch > Greek

argument = πειθώ, πίστις
