The history of philosophy is dominated by men's names – does that mean philosophy is inaccessible to women? Or could we even say that the woman is the philosopher's enemy that hinders his intellectual efforts? Or is it the contrary, being the philosopher's Muse, she helps promote philosophical thought? To answer these questions, the play offers four rather fictional stories about renowned philosophers and their significant others, drawing from Jiří Cetl's work But they were philosophers... (Ale vždyť to byli filozofové..., Brno 2000). It introduces Socrates and his wife Xanthippa, Epicure and Athenian hetaerae, John Lock with a young French lady and finally Jean-Jacquesem Rousseau with his prospective wife and mother-in-law. The ultimate answer to the questions remains to be decided by the reader.
