Graecismus (gree-kis’-mus): Using Greek words, examples, or grammatical structures. Sometimes considered an affectation of erudition.
My enthymemes tend toward the topos of antitheses. I believe the dissoi logoi rightfully capture the episteme of rhetorical decision making. That is, if there is only one side able to be considered, a decision cannot be made, although adherence to the ‘one side’ will enable movement toward the future and provide the illusion of krisis.
