Lecture 2

Plato's Symposium
The first three speeches (Phaedrus, Pausanias and Eryximachus)
Genre: Dialogue
There is no distinction between form and content
Symposium (sym; together + posium; to drink) - a social gathering between male citizens with the intent
of drinking. Participation of female citizens was limited. The women's job was to entertain the male
citizens.
However, in Plato's dialogue the symposium they were not going to drink because they are already hung
over. It becomes a dry symposium (quite an oxymoron). Also, the female flute player was sent out rather
than entertaining them. It seemed to be a more serious symposium.
The lover is in the relationship for self gratification and to pass on knowledge to the boyfriend who is in
the relationship for the knowledge.
At a young age, a mother teaches her daughter how to cook and how to become a good wife. Women
were excluded from the more formal education the male citizens got and so were not as intellectually
grown as the opposite gender. This would explain why the men often looked for boyfriends they could
connect with on an intellectual level.
The events of the Symposium as narrated by Apollodorus is quite unreliable because he is reporting
what Aristodemus said he believes someone else said. Plato was probably trying to just give us different
perspectives on this event. THREE LAYERS OF THE SYMPOSIUM (what happened, what Aristodemus
remembered and what Apollodorus understood)
'Literary expression of the Socratic method of learning'
Helps us develop an opinion
Partake in an idea of truth

Topic of the symposium: LOVE
The speeches are in order of hierarchy.
1st speaker: Phaedrus
A eulogy, took a religious stance; praise to the god Love. His speech is nicely done but not more than
that, compliments love but fails to make a point, no reasoning, no structure, no substance. Poorly
argued. Backed his speech with love inspired heroism examples from a Greek mythology.
"Phaedrus' speech went rather like that..." Aristodemus did not give an exact account.
2nd speaker: Pausanias
Made a distinction between two types of love, common love (attracted to women as much as boys,
bodies over minds, attracted to partners with the least possible intelligence, effect of love: act without
