Consigny, Scott. "Edward Schiappa's Reading of the Sophists." Rhetoric Review 14.2 (Spring 1996): 253-269.[edit]

From Consigny's abstract:

"I next examine Schiappa's critique of his adversaries and the nature of his own "foundationalist" reading, one he presents as a more accurate and objective historical account of the sophists. Aligning myself with his neosophistic opponents, I then critique Schiappa's approach, arguing that rather than offering a more objective reading, he instead presents a highly partisan interpretation that attempts to portray the sophists in his own foundationalist precursors [sic]" (253)
