Descrizione: In the second book  of De Oratore Cicero analyses the ratio dicendi in terms of three functions: (1) ut probemus vera esse, quae defendimus; (2) ut conciliemus eos nobis, qui audiunt; (3) ut animos eorum, ad quemcumque causa postulabit motum, vocemus (2.115). This paper is concerned with the second of these functions as presented by Cicero, and with the Aristotelian theory of Rhet. 1.2.1356 a 5-13, from which he derived this second function.' I shall try to explain the modifications Cicero made, his motives in making them, and the difficulties arising from his choice of adaptation [Author]
