<span><span>In this book, Mary Townsend proposes that, contrary to the current scholarship on Plato's </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Republic</span><span>, Socrates does not in fact set out to prove the weakness of women. Rather, she argues that close attention to the drama of the </span><span style="font-style:italic;">Republic </span><span>reveals that Plato dramatizes the reluctance of men to allow women into the public sphere and offers a deeply aporetic vision of women's nature and political position-a vision full of concern not only for the human community, but for the desires of women themselves.</span></span>
