Recension de : Tarnopolsky C.H., Prudes, Perverts, and Tyrants. Plato's Gorgias and the Politics of Shame. Pp. xvi + 218. Princeton and Oxford: Princeton University Press, 2010

Abstract : Our contemporary views on the role of shame in our democracies seem sometimes to be reduced to a distorted opposition between the condemnation of this conservative emotion in societies, which lead to humiliation and exclusion, and a praise of a sense of shame crucial for instilling respect and openness to differences. Tarnopolsky’s monograph is, on this point, a promising book in contemporary political philosophy, for it shows how the complex, yet well stated, view on the role of shame in the Gorgias could illuminate our understanding of shaming acts and sense of shame in our own democracies.
