Musings on Plato’s Symposium

Alex Priou

Political Animal Press | 2023

In Musings on Plato’s Symposium, Alex Priou offers a holistic interpretation of Plato’s seminal work on love. An insightful commentary presented in short, aphoristic sections, the book is both a way into the depths of the dialogue for serious students, and a philosophical challenge for experts. Inspired by Plato’s own mixture of the playful, prankish, flirtatious, outrageous, and beyond, the book is incisive and innovative in style and substance alike, and it rewards those who wish to approach the mysteries of Plato’s Symposium and its ultimate subject: the meaning of love in its many forms.
