OLIVARES CHAVEZ, Carolina. “Paradise”, agriculture and virtue in some works by Xenophon. Nova tellus [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.2, pp.31-45. ISSN 0185-3058.

In this article I want to show that, from the notion of the Persian “paradise”, Xenophon makes the eulogy of agriculture and encourages citizens practice it, because it is one of the few hands-on activities that contribute to the education of man to promote virtue. Far from being a mere theoretical or even utopian proposal, the historian himself put into practice during their stay in Scillus. To achieve my goal I rely mainly on Oeconomicus, Anabasis and Cyropaedia; I also take into account the studies of Jesús Lens-Tuero and Jesús Carruesco, among other modern scholars. This exposition divided into four parts.

Palabras llave : Paradise; Agriculture; Virtue; Xenophon; Oeconomicus; Anabasis; Cyropaedia.
