The Sophists of classical Greece arose in the 5th century BC. They did not constitute an organized school of thought, but were a group of professional rhetoricians who frequently expounded on philosophical topics. Although excoriated by Aristotle and Plato, their argumentative techniques had a great effect on the development of Western philosophy.
