Sophists/Taureck: contemporary meaning of Sophists is: "knowledgeable, experienced men".
There was a turn to humans and to anthropological questions. Relationship of the human to the state.
Before, being, cosmos and nature were in the foreground.
The Sophists are linked to money and power struggles. "Whores of knowledge," in such a way the author lets Socrates speak.
Sophists appeared as teachers of public speech. Time of the reign of the "30 tyrants": 404 - 403, Peloponnese war: 431 - 404.
Resolutions of the people's assemblies were majority resolutions.
