The sequence of dazzling speeches culminates in Socrates' famous account of the views of Diotima, a prophetess who taught him that love is our means of trying to attain goodness. And then into the party bursts the drunken Alcibiades, the most popular and notorious Athenian ... Show more

educational philosophy.

by sang on Sep 9, 2009

The writings of Plato can be quite an inspiration to anyone's life. While other ordinary books suggest a hazy picture of a philosophy, Plato delineates a detailed image of the simpleste things we view and feel in life.

Wonderful

by Selina on Oct 1, 2007

This is one of the few books I read in Greak Civ that I really liked. The language can be a bit rough to understand in parts, but this is truly on interesting book. This is more a book to read and debate with friends. Plato brings up many points that are important even in today's world. This is not a quick read, but it is well worth the time to read Plato's brilliant work.
