And Aristotle says that dialectic is the counterpart to rhetoric, since it also [is] about persuasive things, which by being probable are themselves of this same kind; for he says antistrophon ["counterpart to"] meaning isostrophon ["equivalent to"], and "engaged in" and "concerned with" about the same things.[2]
