pt. 1. Sexuality in myths and early philosophy. The Greek dream of a womanless world ; Thought and sexuality : a troubled relationsip : an analysis of Hesiod and Parmenides -- The logic of exclusion and the free men's democracy : an analysis of the notions of equality and balance in Anaximander and Parmenides -- pt. 2.

Tragic conflict or platonic harmony? : two views of gender in antiquity ; Sexuality and philosophy in Pato's Symposium ; Virginity and masculine reproduction in a woman's looking-glass : Irigaray's reading of the cave myth ; From pederasty to philosophy : on Foucault's view of sexuality in antiquity.
Summary: For most of its history, western philosophy has regarded woman as an imperfect version of man. Like so many aspects of western culture, this tradition builds on foundations laid in ancient Greece. Yet the first philosophers of antiquity were hardly agreed on first principles. Songe-Mller shows how the Greeks made intellectual choices that would prove fateful for half of humankind.
