Demosthenes on Corruption - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 48
Corruption/Democracy/Demosthenes/ Höffe: (...) Aristotle's contemporary Demosthenes (384-322 B.C.), [achieved] prestige and prosperity through speeches at court. Politically, however, Demosthenes emerged as a sharp critic of Philip II. In his Philippica, pugnacious inflammatory speeches against Philip, he accuses him of not being a Greek, not even a barbarian, but "a scoundrel from Macedonia", whose bribery in Athens unfortunately caused many politicians to succumb.
