BACARLETT PEREZ, María Luisa  and  PEREZ BERNAL, Angeles Ma. del Rosario. El papel del Pathos en la teoría platónica del conocimiento. Eidos [online]. 2013, n.18, pp.46-77. ISSN 2011-7477.

We analyze the role of pathos as emergency condition for both, logos and episteme, which leads us to recognize that along with an intellectual conception of the Platonic theory of knowledge, that demands to abolish all irrational elements which cloud the judgment, there is another perspective, especially supported by the Phaedrus, in which pathos, understood as astonishment, suffering or love madness, is not just a stage to overcome in order to arrive to the intuition of Forms, but it becomes itself a cognitive experience that gives back to knowledge its human nature.

Keywords : Pathos; logos; episteme; knowledge; divine madness.
