Prohibited Pictures: Political Education and Platonic Elitism [Book Review]

Studies in Philosophy and Education 17 (4):243-250 (1998)
Abstract
This paper attempts to bring out the contemporary significance for the philosophy of education of Plato's strictures in the Republic against mimetic art forms. The argument follows a route which leads through an examination of Wittgenstein's picture theory of the proposition to the conclusion that this theory is itself a kind of picture which exercises over the intellect the selfsame erotic magnetism which Plato feared would corrupt the rulers of his ideal state
