Les mythes concernant la destinée de l'âme dans le Phédon et le Gorgias de Platon

Abstract : In the Phaedo and the Gorgias, Socrates undertakes a long and well-argued discourse, in order to demonstrate the immortality of the soul in the first, and to defend justice in the second. But in each of them a myth takes over from the reasoning. Why is this myth used ? What does hinder the arguments in order to be able to think the superiority of the soul over the body in the Gorgias, and the survival of the soul out of the body in the Phaedo? What is the function of the myth in relation to the different recipients and is its relevance linked to the latter or to the object in question?
