Children are not going to sit back and admire the grace and density of your imagery. Feminist criticisms of Plato's theories stress dialogues (like the Timaeus and Laws) that characterize women as inferior to men rather than the egalitarian Republic. For example, to cite Cynthia Freeland's catalogue: “Aristotle says that the courage of a man lies in commanding, a woman's lies in obeying; that 'matter yearns for form, as the female for the male and the ugly for the beautiful'; that women have fewer teeth than men; that a female is an incomplete male or 'as it were, a deformity': which contributes only matter and not form to the generation of offspring; that in general 'a woman is perhaps an inferior being'; that female characters in a tragedy will be inappropriate if they are too brave or too clever”(Freeland 1994: 145–46).

I think you’re confusing with a personal philosophy, which can be seen as a replacement for religion. 2. A Biographical Turn in the Social Sciences? Keynote address at CSICOP conference, 1987 In some respects, science has far surpassed religion in delivering awe. Very many of Philip K Dick 's sf stories are concerned with false worldviews of various kinds – and, indeed, with the possibility that reality is intrinsically subjective; Eye in the Sky (1957) features a series of Parallel Worlds incarnating the characters' neurotic worldviews, while The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (1965) was the first of a sequence of novels dealing with reality-warping Drugs, which eventually culminated in the deeply embittered black comedy A Scanner Darkly (1977).
