In Utrumque Partes
in ut-rum'kay par'-tes / From Latin: "on either side"
Also known as: in utrumque partem
Arguing both sides of an issue. Aristotle explains that doing so is necessary to be sure one is arriving at the true state of the case (see stasis) and to anticipate counterarguments (see procatalepsis).
As such, this term names not so much a figure of speech as a general approach to rhetoric, or an overall argumentative strategy. However, it could be manifest within a speech on a local level as well, especially for the purposes of exhibiting fairness (establishing ethos).
