Diatribe

(1,230 words)

Author(s): Uthemann, Karl-Heinz (Amsterdam) | Görgemanns, Herwig (Heidelberg)
[German version] A. Concept Diatribe is a modern concept which owes its existence to the fact that, based on Wilamowitz's [3] formal description of the Cynic  Teles' popular-philosophical ‘sermons’ (3rd cent.BC), Usener [1. LXIX] and Wendland [2] introduced for these ‘diatribe’ as a generic term. It has stood the test of time, as long as it is taken as a kind of ancient dialexis (first in [4]); originally as a synonym of dialogos, dialexis referred to any kind of conversation, but in the usage of philosophers and rhetors, it then came to mean a didactic, but also ent…

Diatribe

(1,088 words)

Author(s): Uthemann, Karl-Heinz (Amsterdam) | Görgemanns, Herwig (Heidelberg)

Er hat sich bewährt, sofern man ihn (wie erstmals [4]) als eine Art ant. dialexis auffaßt, die urspr. synonym mit dialogos jede Form eines Gesprächs meinte, dann aber im Sprachgebrauch der Philosophen und Rhetoren jenen Lehr-, aber auch unterhaltenden V…
