Quote For The Month. April 2017

Anyone who goes on asking one question for a long time is a bad interrogator. For, if the person questioned keeps on answering his question, obviously he asks a number of questions or asks the same thing time after time, so that either he is babbling or else he has no reasoned argument to offer; for reasoning is always based on a few premisses only. On the other hand, if he goes on asking questions because the other party does not answer, why does he not reprove him or else stop asking questions?
Aristotle, 384-322 bce, Topica. Translated into English by E. S. Foster, 1960.
