« All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. » The « theatre of the world » is a trite metaphor that pervades even abstract vocabulary; « person » derives from the Latin persona signifying « mask », then « role ». Drama can serve as a heuristic tool in fields as diverse as rhetoric, ethics or metaphysics. The construction of drama as an aesthetical object influences the construction of such philosophical problems as human action, since theatre offers theory an analogical and artificial model, as shown through the forms and uses of the « theatre of the world » metaphor from Antiquity to the early modern period, with special reference to such key authors as Cicero, Plotinus, Thomas Moore, Montaigne, Shakespeare or Calderón. This study offer a dramatical history of such notions as the person, but also a philosophical history of such dramatical notions as actor, poet, scene or spectator. The theatre of the world thus acts both as a way to think metaphorically about the world and as an oblique (and often original) source for the history of theater. Far from being a dead or dying metaphor, the theatre of the world offers new perspectives on both the world and the theatre : it opens a dialogue between philosophy and drama, Socrates and Shakespeare.
