Un théâtre socratique ? Essai d'interprétation de la figure de Socrate dans le théâtre occidental moderne : des sources au mythe

Abstract : Surely because he wrote nothing, Socrates is much written about. Immediately after his death in 399 B.C., a death felt as a tragic injustice, his pupils wrote dialogues to keep him alive. The so called "Socratic dialogues" were so flourishing that it makes Socrates go down in the world of litterary and philosophical muths. Modernity is however the time in which blossomed the lyths of Socrates, a secular saint, rival of Christ, herald of a morality called to do without God and priests, embodying the ideas of justice and freedom to the sacrifice. Theater is one of the favourite places, if no the perfect but difficult place where this myth is expressed. Heir of the socratic dialogues, the plays try out to philosophize on stage till finding the socratic inspiration which, trough the art of dialogue, invites each one to find himself.
