Sophism

Snippet from Wikipedia: Sophist

A sophist (Greek: σοφιστής, sophistes) was a teacher in ancient Greece in the fifth and fourth centuries BC. Sophists specialized in one or more subject areas, such as philosophy, rhetoric, music, athletics (physical culture), and mathematics. They taught arete – "virtue" or "excellence" – predominantly to young statesmen and nobility.
