This, in essence, is the critique of Athenian democracy advanced by critics like Plato, Isocrates, and Aristotle. What these diverse critics have in common is a conviction that unchecked, demagogic oratory will destroy the possibility for proper deliberation. This is also a concern that Thucydides explores at some length. To do full justice to his treatment of this issue one would have to analyze carefully a whole series of major debates that occur throughout his narrative. In the present context, our abbreviated account of Thucydides’ views on this important issue will focus on his famous account of the Mytilinean Debate.

In Athens, decision-making by popular democratic institutions (law courts and the Assembly) depended upon deliberation in the form of speeches for and against a proposition. Because they acutely recognized the power of rhetoric, the art of persuasion via the medium of the spoken word, Athenians also realized its capacity to move individuals to action or a decision on the basis of emotion rather than reason. To its critics, this was the crippling weakness of Athenian democracy. On their view it demonstrated the necessity for other forms of constitution, where political deliberation would be the work of a smaller group more able to exercise sound judgment.
