(THE DEBATE ON CONSTITUTIONS IN HERODOTUS (3,80-82) and (POLITICAL THINKING IN HERODOTUS) and (EMANCIPATION OF WOMEN IN ATHENS: AN ESSAY IN ATHENIAN CULTURAL HISTORY DURING THE FIFTH AND FOURTH CENTURIES) No ancient text of comparable length - not even the Funeral Oration in Thucydides - offers greater insight into the political ideas of the Greeks of the classical age than does the debate on constitutions in Herodotus (3,80-82). In the first monograph this text is studied with minute care. The writer reviews the very extensive modern literature on this passage in Herodotus, translates it, gives an analytical interpretation of its thought, hazards views as to the provenance of various ideas in it, and sets forth is conclusions as to Herodotus' purpose in including it in his History. Wust's monograph contains four studies: "Herodotus' Exposition of the Spartan State"; "Herodotus and Athens"; "Herodotus' Position on the Theory of the State"; Greeks and Persians." The third selection is a brief but penetrating review of ideas concerning the emancipation of women which were ventilated in Athens towards the end of the fifth century and the first part of the fourth century B.C. The author, Ivo Bruns, attacks the notion that Euripides was a misogynist. He sees Aristophones as lampooning, rather than advocating, the equality of the sexes. He combats the assumption that it was philosophers like Plato who originated the idea of the emancipation of women; he thinks that, on the contrary, the philosopher took over ideas which were dependent on social movements in the fifth and early fourth century and sought to find a rational basis for them.
