CAVALLERO, Pablo A.. Socrates as a pharmakós or about the identification of Aristophanes and Socrates. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2007, n.11, pp. 91-100. ISSN 1851-1724.
This article renders the possibility to interpret the end of Aristophanes' Clouds as an allusion to the rite of the pharmakós, when a man who loads the others' guilt is punished. It is compared with the Socrates' proposition in the Plato's Apology. Aristophanes does not blame Socrates himself, but the Strepsiades' anti-ethic and illegal attitude and the use of the sophistic rhetoric with this purpose.
