Heath, M. (1994) The substructure of stasis-theory from Hermagoras to Hermogenes. Classical Quarterly, 44 (1). pp. 114-129. ISSN 0009-8388
This paper analyses the history of the scheme aition, sunekhon, krinomenon in the rhetorical theory of stasis (issue-theory). The role of this scheme in the theory of Hermagoras of Temnos is reconstructed; it is shown that successive changes of position in Cicero's theoretical writings reflect the breakdown of Hermagoras' system. Responses to this breakdown in a number of later rhetoricians, including Quintilian, Lollianus and Minucianus, are discussed; Zeno and Hermogenes abandoned the scheme.
