When the assembly meets to elect a physician or a shipwright or any other craftsman, will the rhetorician be taken into counsel? Surely not.
Not a proclaimed Rhetorician, like Gorgias here, no.
Though, rhetoric would have to show up in the discussions as to who makes the cut in the election. The physician being elected would have to make some sort argument as to why he's the best.
Rhetorician: The profession within a profession
Why, did I not say that it was the noblest of arts?
Using rhetoric within rhetoric to make it more... rhetoric?
