Once again, I am indebted to Professor Vicki Lynn Harper for this observation.

We tacitly claim to be able to specify the physical parameters of the thing: it begins here, it ends there, and between the beginning and the end is one object. Thus in enumerating we also delineate objects. We can tell that something is an object because we can count it. An apothegem attributed to Theano concerns two well-known Pythagorean doctrines: the immortality of souls, and the transmigration of souls. Theano confirms that the Pythagoreans believed in "divine justice" in the afterlife and in the transmigration of souls after death into a new body which was not necessarily human.

But this interpretation is attractive if we recall that according to Phintys, courage, justice and wisdom are common to both men and women. Presumably, this is why it is fitting for a woman to philosophize. But generally, the normative principle of harmonia is to be satisfied within the context of specific social responsibilities. 3. Women and Justice in the Home Phintys describes the many injustices created by a woman who is unfaithful. When she married, she took an oath, together with her parents and all her relatives.
