Summary/Abstract: Referring to Plato’s dialogues, this text presents how the author’s authority influences the strength of persuasion. The matter is discussed from different perspectives: the authority of Socrates as the master-philosopher, the maieutic method as a process of a “deprivation” of authority, and the way Plato presented selected persons in his dialogues before he cited their words.
