derrida, plato, socrates, phaedrus

i finished my first full paper of the semester yesterday. my head is still too cloudy to figure out if it is any good or not. anyways check it out

plato’s phaedrus and the ambiguity of rhetoric and the dialectic method


  1. I love the word "prima facie."

  2. I'm not sure if it's used correctly

  3. I'm pretty sure it's used wrong also (I've only heard it used in legal context so I'm not sure) but I still award 10 points because it's a cool phrase.

  4. yeah, it didn't seem right either, but i was too damn tired and sick to bother fixing it.

    it's the at preceding the phrase that is screwing it up, but removing it seems weird as well. i'm sure my professor will show me how stupid i am.

  5. i figured it out. it should be...

    "The Phaedrus is prima facie a criticism of the art of rhetoric.

    too late though. i've already turned it in
