    Longinus identified this phenomenon in his treatise On the Sublime: “By a sort of natural law in all such matters we always attend to whatever possesses superior force; whence it is that we are drawn away from demonstration pure and simple to any startling image within whose dazzling brilliancy the argument lies concealed. And it is not unreasonable that we should be affected in this way, for when two things are brought together, the more powerful always attracts to itself the virtue of the weaker.” Longinus, On the Sublime, trans. W. Rhys Roberts (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1907), 15.7.Google Scholar
