"Despite startling vacillations in regard to particular matters, Isocrates adhered consistently enough to his dominant political theme--the policy of unifying his countrymen for the purpose of a war against their natural enemy, Persia."
" In the history of education... he played a highly influential and significant part....
Education was the dominant concept that provided the guidelines of Isoctrates' entire activity and thought; and in that respect Isocrates was a representative spokesman of his age." (Grant, Michael. Greek and Latin Authors 800 B.C. - A.D. 1000. pp 229-230)/.
