Euthydemus is Plato's defense of Socratic dialogue as a means to pursue truth.In Euthydemus, Plato has Socrates engage in a conversation with the title character and his brother Dionysodorus, both famous Sophists. They are representative of a type of argument, which Plato calls 'eristic', that emphasizes verbal trickery in order to humiliate your opponent and win your debate. This is contrasted with Socrates' dialectic, where words are a means of discerning reality, not gaining victory. In the process, Plato makes a case for the Socratic method as a means of educating youth, something he was attempting to do in his own newly-opened Academy.Presented in Plato's usual dramatic style, Euthydemus is simultaneously an engaging read and a passionate pedagogical manifesto.

Euthydemus, written circa 384 BCE, is a dialogue by Plato which satirizes what Plato presents as the logical fallacies of the Sophists. In it, Socrates describes to his friend Crito a visit he and various youths paid to two brothers, Euthydemus and Dionysodorus, both of whom were prominent Sophists from Chios and Thurii. The Euthydemus contrasts Socratic argumentation and education with the methods of Sophism, to the detriment of the latter. Throughout the dialogue, Euthydemus and Dionysodorus continually attempt to ensnare Socrates with what are presented as deceptive and meaningless arguments, primarily to demonstrate their professed philosophical superiority. As in many of the Socratic dialogues, the two Sophists against whom Socrates argues were indeed real people. Euthydemus was somewhat famous at the time the dialogue was written, and is mentioned several times by both Plato and Aristotle. Likewise, Dionysodorus is mentioned by Xenophon. Plato defines Euthydemus' and Dionysodorus' argumentation as 'eristic'. This literally means "designed for wrangling" ('eris' meaning 'strife' in Greek). No matter how one attempts to refute eristic arguments, the argument is designed so that any means of refutation will fail. For example, at one point, Euthydemus attempts to prove the impossibility of falsehood:"Non-facts do not exist do they?"No, they don't."And things which do not exist do not exist anywhere, do they?"No."Now, is it possible for things which do not exist to be the object of any action, in the sense that things which do not exist anywhere can have anything done to them?"I don't think so."Well then, when politicians speak in the Assembly, isn't that an activity?"Yes, it is."And if it's an activity, they are doing something?"Yes."Then speech is activity, and doing something?"He agreed."So no one speaks non-existent things: I mean, he would already, in speaking, be doing something, and
