The article deals with the complex and multifaced function of the concept of ἀλήθεια in the treatise "On the Sublime". The analysis allows to highlight the fact that the author of the critical and rhetorical work does not build up a coherent and univocal theory of the truth, but adapts functionally the concept to various aims, from the paideutic purposes to the reflections on the previous literary tradition, but always with a special attention to the effect of the truth in relationship with the dynamics of the sublime.

Abstract

The article deals with the complex and multifaced function of the concept of ἀλήθεια in the treatise "On the Sublime". The analysis allows to highlight the fact that the author of the critical and rhetorical work does not build up a coherent and univocal theory of the truth, but adapts functionally the concept to various aims, from the paideutic purposes to the reflections on the previous literary tradition, but always with a special attention to the effect of the truth in relationship with the dynamics of the sublime.
