Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai si tu es sage. Postures et paroles du philosophe dans les banquets de Platon

Abstract : In Plato's Symposium, several elements of the dramatization are going to isolate Socrates and oppose him to the rest of the audience. In book 2 of Republic during the progressive establisment of the city-state, tables, “table-couches” and elaborate meels are the marks of the passage from one to another ways of life. The first one is the frugal way of life of the « authentic city-state » where men celebrate laying on straw mattresses. The second one is the wealthy way of life of the « luxurious city-state » before it becomes a « beautiful city-state » also known as Plato's kallipolis. I thus wish to question here the elements that, far from being background details with no significance, are indicators of the notion and the picture that Plato makes of the philosopher inside the city-state.
