Semblables inférieures : quels lieux pour les femmes dans la cité juste de Platon ?
Keywords:Laws, Republic, oikos, politics, Women
What place can women have in Plato’s just city? In opposition to the two main antagonistic positions on this topic - some consider Plato a promoter of gender equality as he allows women to have political office, while others put the stress on the fact that Plato keeps them in a subordinate status - this article makes a new claim: these two positions must be held together because of the nature of the rationality at work in Plato’s political philosophy, as a combination of emancipatory theoretical elements, and the taking into account of the constraints of history.
