This study explores the relation between Plato's Republic and Laws on the set of issues that the Laws marks out as fundamental to the comparison--the unity of the virtues, the role of women, and the place of the family. Plato aims to persuade men to abandon the views of the good life that Greek cities and their laws inculcate as the only life worth living for those who would be real men and not effeminate weaklings.

Review:

"[Kochin's] book is must-reading for anyone interested in Plato's political thought and themes of gender in political thought." Review of Politics

"Particularly noteworthy is the manner in which Kochin powerfully raises the question of the relation between justice and happiness." The Standard Reader

"Elegant parsimony of style, rigorous argument, and commendable mastery of the relevant primary and secondary sources characterize this excellent invesigation of Plato's political teaching. Highly recommended." Choice

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Gender and Rhetoric in Plato s Thought explores the relation between Plato s Republic and Laws on the set of issues that the Laws itself marks out as fundamental to the comparison: the unity of the virtues, the role of women, and the place of the family. Plato aims to persuade men to abandon the view of the good life that Greek cities and their laws inculcate as the only life worth living for those who would be real men and not effeminate weaklings. What we can learn about Plato is the importance for him of understanding the nature of persuasion in order to come to terms with gender justice and the apparent plurality of human goods. What we learn from Plato is that to tackle the issues that arise in our new political community of men and women we must comprehend the proper bases and limits of persuasion.
