Feminist Interpretations of Plato
Penn State Press, 1994 - Philosophy - 286 pages
The essays in this anthology explore the full spectrum of Plato's philosophy and are representative of the variety of perspectives within feminist criticism. The essays in the first section focus primarily on Plato's social and political theory, and in particular the place of women within the state. The second section concentrates on examining the role of the feminine within Plato's metaphysics and epistemology.
Tuana introduces both sections and a detailed bibliography is included.
