The word "sophistry" is central to the play because it is the kind of educational training that Socrates provides in his school. It connotes a special kind of knowledge: knowledge that is subtle, tricky, and probably false. "Sophist" would have the same ring to ancient Athenian ears as "con-man" would to modern ears.
