ALVAREZ, Lucas Manuel. El uso de aischýne (vergüenza) en Antifonte y la política democrática de la Atenas clásica. Argos [online]. 2011, vol.34, n.1, pp. 9-29. ISSN 1853-6379.
Nowadays, the controversy about Antiphon's identity is still divided between the separatists (who pose the existence of at least two homonym authors) and the unitarian scholars (who attribute all the works to the same person). From a unitarian's position, this work will focus on the sophist and logographer's work, paying special attention to the use of the notion of aischýne. First, we will show the connection between this notion, the eye of others and the image the citizens give to stand before their equals. Then, these ideas will be linked with the Attic drama, and finally we will compare the way in which theatre and the democratic pólis work.
