Abstract

Starting from the theses expressed by Luciano Canfora in his recent volume on utopia in Aristophanes and Plato, this paper proposes a reflection on a metaphorical image – the politician sheperd of his people – that, already attested in homeric poetry, has been renewed by his peculiar purpose in a passage of Aristophanes’ Assemblywomen and in Plato’s first five Republic’s books, in conjunction with some crucial points of the development of the utopian concept of his Kallipolis.
