It also attempts to explore the devolution of the aristocrat, which is claimed to be a "juxtapositional event." —This dialogue begins with a fatuous exchange between the characters, Phalantheus and Qoon, and then advances into a discussion of both the actor and aristocrat's role in the societies of the ancient world.
