From the Paper:

"The dialectic or question and answer method of arriving at knowledge and learning is used in Plato's dialogues .Sophists philosophers who were paid for their rhetoric existed in Plato's and Socrates' time and relied upon rhetoric. Plato through Socrates vehemently rejects rhetoric as nothing more than opinionated words. In "Gorgias" Plato objects to rhetoric because he believes it offers no real knowledge but only opinions. As Socrates tells Gorgias who puts up a fierce defense of rhetoric as the highest art."
