These two dialogues explore a vital concern of a democratic society: how to define the special abilities and qualities that make a genuine statesman.
They further examine the distinction between an authentic statesman and the sophist, an individual who pretends to be a statesman but lacks the essential knowledge, personal qualities, and philosophical outlook.
