Regular el mundo de la fiesta: un proyecto normativo en Leyes

Keywords: Plato, Laws, Feast, Drink, Dionysus

Abstract

The paper deals with of one aspect of “The Laws”: the rules proposed on partying, drinking and the type of music and dance presided over by Dionysus. The Athenian tries to combine: a) the need for education to form law-abiding citizens capable of defending the city; b) the need to control the disturbing effects of drinking and debauchery on music and dance; and c) the desire to maintain the Athenian tradition they were proud of: the conciliation of military excellence and the fun produced by drinking, music and dance.
