Plato on Women: Revolutionary Ideas for Gender Equality in an Ideal Society by Harald Haarmann
What has been produced up to the present regarding Plato's positions on the agenda of gender are disparate studies whose scope falls short of the whole range of angles from which Plato himself approached the issues, and the study of gender issues in Plato has remained unsystematic so far. In this book, Harald Haarmann provides the first systematic analysis of Plato's positions on gender and the role of women in an ideal society.
