We prove minimax theorems for lower semicontinuous functions defined on a Hilbert space. The main tools are the theory of Φ-convex functions and sufficient and necessary conditions for the minimax equality for general &\Phi;-convex functions. The conditions we propose are expressed in terms of abstract Φ-subgradients.

Keywords: Abstract convexity, minimax theorems, intersection property, abstract Phi-subdifferential, abstract Phi-subgradient.
