Questões sobre a ‘teoria do género’ na história da tradição filosófica grega

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The main objective of this article is to analyze some of the questions raised by the ‘gender theory’ regarding the historical tradition of philosophy and the problems it raises as to the category ‘woman’. The questions raised by contemporary philosophers about ‘gender’ compel us to better evaluate the canons of the Greek philosophical tradition and leads us to identify some of the most pertinent questions in this regard. Next, we problematize the idea of gender and give some of the meanings that this concept has in the Greek philosophical tradition, in particular, in Aristotle and Plato. The final meaning of our article was not intended to make a feminist or anti-feminist reading of the Greeks, but rather to carry out an internal reading of some of the texts of Aristotle and Plato, where the question of gender emerges, within the scope of his thinking, from the biological, anthropological and ontological points.
