MARSICO, Claudia. Anti-Cyrenaic Arguments in Plato’s Republic Cultural Program. Diánoia [online]. 2019, vol.64, n.83, pp.3-26.  Epub 13-Abr-2020. ISSN 0185-2450.

Plato put forward in Republic a cultural program which implies the redefinition of the role of traditional poetry due to its association with the democratic and tyrannical regimes. I intend to show that this point is connected with the anti-cyrenaic arguments that Plato raises against Aristippus. On the one hand, I will study the features of the tyrannical biotype and its correspondent regime in Republic VIII-IX, and, on the other, I will analyze its links with the anti-cyrenaic arguments in Gorgias. This exam will allow us to offer some clues to better understand two widely debated passages in Republic IX: the analogy of the lift and the tyrant’s number. Both acquire a new perspective when this intra-socratic polemic is taken into account.

Palabras llave : psychology; politics; Aristippus; poetry; tyranny.
