This chapter discusses the commentary of Giles of Rome on Aristotle's Rhetoric. Written around 1272, Giles's commentary reflects his lack of interest in the Ciceronian-Boethian tradition and in reconciling Aristotle's work with the more familiar rhetorical frameworks. This can be attributed to Aristotle's argument that rhetoric is like dialectic and is related to ethics. Giles also offers a refined view of the scholastic understanding of the difference between dialectic and rhetoric.

Keywords:   commentary, Giles of Rome, Aristotle, Rhetoric, dialectic, ethics
