Plato's Symposium


Among the most widely read of Plato’s dialogues, the Symposium presents a profoundly serious explication of eros that challenges the limits of reason, the nature of gender, identity and narrative form. This introductory guide first sketches the historical background, then the key philosophical themes, before providing a section by section reading of the text, and an overview of its influence.
