Politics in Socrates' Alcibiades

Abstract

The prominent role of women in the Spartan and Persian Speech in Plato’s dialogue Alcibiades Major has not been sufficiently appreciated. I remedy this by laying out the context in which the speech is presented; explaining what precisely the women of the speech say about Alcibiades’ challenge to their men; surveying and critiquing what commentators have said about the role women play in the speech; and advancing a reading of the speech that unifies the sentiments attributed to each woman as expressed by Socrates
