In Spite of Plato: A Feminist Rewriting of Ancient Philosophy
This work pursues two interwoven themes. Firstly, it engages in a deconstruction of ancient philosophers' texts - mainly from Plato, but also from Homer and Parmenides - in order to free four Greek female figures from the patriarchal discourse which for centuries had imprisoned them in a particular role. Secondly, it attempts to construct a symbolic female order, reinterpreting these figures from a new perspective.
