Selected contents from this journal
Woman in Plato’s writings. Between everyday life and idea
Languages of publication
The article analyzes an image of woman in the Plato’s writings. For a systematization of the subject, the author uses three categories: woman-thing, woman-wisdom and woman-human being (citizen). This article points out the fact that Plato allowed women activity in all spheres of life. Especially, he expressed the idea of the equal education for women and men. The author also proposes a thesis that these Plato’s views are based on his metaphysics: particularly on the deﬁnition of human being as a spirit. In consequence diﬀerences between women and men are amounted only to physical diﬀerences.
