[20] Let us now turn to consider the “places” of arguments, although some hold that they are identical with the topics which I have already discussed above.1 But I do not use this term in its usual acceptance, namely, commonplaces2 directed against luxury, adultery, and the like, but in the sense of the secret places where arguments reside, and from which they must be drawn forth.

1 In previous chapter.

2 See ii. iv. 22, v. xii. 6 and xiii. 57.
