[14] Aristotle, it is true, in his Gryllus1 produces some tentative arguments to [p. 333] the contrary, which are marked by characteristic ingenuity. On the other hand he also wrote three books on the art of rhetoric, in the first of which he not merely admits that rhetoric is an art, but treats it as a department of politics and also of logic.

1 A lost treatise, named after Gryllus, the son of Xenophon.
