Cavarero attempts to "rewrite" ancient philosophy in less misogynistic terms. To do so, she must wrest many female models from the misogynistic philosophical framework of Plato ( This is a challenging book of feminist philosophy. I don't purport to have understood all of it. At times I got lost, and for personal reasons I took long breaks between reading it that made it hard to keep all of the book's points in my mind. Nevertheless, it is a really interesting read and one that I would recommend.

This pathbreaking work pursues two interwoven themes. Firstly, it engages in a deconstruction of Ancient philosopher's texts--mainly from Plato, but also from Homer and Parmenides--in order to free four Greek female figures from the patriarchal discourse which for centuries had imprisoned them in a particular role. Secondly, it attempts to construct a symbolic female order, reinterpreting these figures from a new perspective. Building on the theory of sexual difference, Cavarero shows that death is the central category on which the whole edifice of traditional philosophy is based. By contrast, the category of birth provides the thread with which new concepts of feminist criticism can be woven together to establish a fresh way of thinking.
