About this product
- DescriptionIn Plato's dialogues, an idealized Socrates expounds the ideas for which Plato will, until the end of history, be famous. The world of Forms: the ideal Republic with its totalitarian masterplan; the tribute to Eros, god of lover (or at least of homosexual love); the promise of the soul's salvation - all this has come down to us in the distinctive tone of voice of Plato's teacher. But how much of it did Socrates believe? Were Plato's contemporaries really taken in? And what lay behind his philosophy, from which the real world of men and women was so rigorously excluded? Until the discovery of the 'Xanthippic Inquiries' we had answer to those questions. Now at last the real Plato is revealed to us, by the women whom he banished from his arguaments. In this brilliant and witty expose, the mask of abstraction is lifted, to reveal the truth that lies beneath. And the truth is Xanthippe: wife of Socrates, teacher of Aristotle, and Founding Mother of the Western World. This is a book that t feminist can afford to igre.
