In Plato's dialogues, an idealised Socrates expounds the ideas for which Plato will, until the end of history, be famous. The world of Forms; the ideal Republic with its totalitarian masterplan; the tribute to Eros, god of love (or at least of homosexual love); the promise of soul's salvation - all this has come down to us in the distinctive tone of Plato's teacher. But how much of it did Socrates believe? Were Plato's contemporaries really taken in? Who was Plato anyway? And what lay behind his philosophy, from which the real world of men and women was so rigorously excluded?

Until the discovery of the Xanthippic Dialogues, we had no answers to those questions. Now the real Plato is revealed to us, by the women whom he banished from his arguments. In this brilliant and witty expos?, the mask of abstraction is lifted, to reveal the truth that lies beneath. And the truth is Xanthippe: wife of Socrates, teacher of Aristole, and Founding Mother of the Western world.
