EBOOK / KINDLE Συμπόσιον

Any Man Of Mine iRating 2 of five all for Aristophanes s way trippy remix of the Book of GenesisWhile perusing a review of Deathn Venice dreadful tale yet another fag must die rather than love piece of normative propaganda written by my good friend Stephen he expressed a desire to read The Symposium before he eventually re reads this crapulous homophobic maundering deathless work of art As I have read The Symposium with less than stellar results I warned him off Well see below for what happened next Stephen wrote Damncan you do a uick cliff notes summary or maybe a video lecture I would much rather take advantage of your previous suffering than have to duplicate Annalee And The Lawman itTHE SYMPOSIUMSo this boring poet dude wins some big ass prize and has a few buds over for a binge They re all lying around together on couches whichs as promising a start to a story as I can think of when the boys decide to stay sober boo and debate the Nature of LuuuvPhaedrus subject of a previous Socratic dialogue by Plato gives a nice little speech dry as a popcorn fart about how Love The Apollonides Mistress Scandal is the oldest of the gods and Achilles was younger than Patroclus and Alcestis died of love for her husband and some other stuff I don t remember because I was drifting off and so I got up to seef I would stay awake better on the patio It was a little nippy that daySo next up s the lawyer I know right Ask a lawyer to talk about love Like asking a priest to talk about honor or a politician to talk about common decency So he pontificates about pederasty for a while which made me uncomfortable so I got up to get some coffee I may have stopped by the brandy bottle on the way back out I can t recallSo after the lawyer tells us when exactly t s okay for a grown man to pork a teenager the doctor chimes Anything For His Son in that luuuuuvs the drug Anticipation it s everything man the whole uuuuuuuniiiiiveeeeeeeeeerses luuuuv Who knew they had hippies n those days I needed brandy I mean coffee and the text of my ancient Penguin paperback was getting smaller and smaller for some reason so I went to look for the brandy get the magnifying glass so I could see the footnotesThen comes Aristophanes Now seriously this s a good bit Aristophanes n Plato s world tells us why we feel whole complete when we re with our true love Once upon a time we were all two bodied and two souled beings all male all female or hermaphroditic When these conjoined twins fell nto disfavor Zeus cleaved them apart and for all eternity to come those souls will wander the earth seeking the other half torn from usNow being Aristophanes Plato plays t for laughs but this s really the heart of the piece Plato uite clearly thought this one through Annie and the Outlaw in terms of what makes us humans want and need love It s a bizarre version of Genesis don cha thinkSo there I was glazed over with brandy fog admiration for themagination of this ancient Greek boybanger and I was about to give up and pass out take my contemplations ANNIE AND THE PRINCE indoors when the wind riffling the pages a bit caused me to light on annteresting line I continued with the host s speechNow reallyis there anything on this wide green earth boring than listening to a poet bloviate Especially about luuuuv Blah blah noble blah blah youthful yakkity blah brave snoreThen The Single Dad's Redemption it s Socrates s turn and I was hoping Plato gave him some good zingers to make up for the tedium of the preceding sixteen years of my life I mean the previous speech It was a little In this book Socrates argues thatt A Christmas Affair is not always a gooddea to have sex with boys and Aristophanes explains we were once co joined creatures of three sexes either malefemale malemale or femalefemale and were shaped like balls How could anyone not find this a book worth reading I Never Met a Physician Who Wasn t Descended from a GreekThis might just be the work that put the meta at least the metafiction n metaphysicsPlato s name s attached to "It But Its Principal " but The Apple Orchard its principals Socrates And guess what Socrates doesn t so much elaborate on his own views as 1 recount the views of others especially those of the female philosopher Diotima and 2 When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son indirectly reveal his views by his conduct and his responses to the views of others especially the taunts of AlcibiadesEven the concept of Platonic Love could possibly be accurately attributed to Socrates but likely to DiotimaIn fact I wonder whether this work proves that the Greek understanding of Love as we comprehendt actually owes to women than menThe Epismetology of the Word SymposiumDespite being familiar with the word for decades I had no dea that symposium or less literally means a drinking party or to drink togetherIn Socrates time t was like a toga party for philosophersIt s great that this learned tradition was reinvigorated by Pomona College n 1953 How appropriate that Pomona was the Roman goddess of fruitful abundance Of course many of us will remember our first experience of a toga party from the film Animal HouseMore recently perhaps n tribute to the film the concept has transformed nto a frat party notice the derivation from the masculine word fraternity which Urban Dictionary defines n ts own nimitable way A sausage fest with douchebag frat boys who let a lot of girls n and hardly any guys so they can slip date rape drugs nto the girls drinks and have sex with them because obviously they can t rely on their charmIf you substitute philosophers for frat boys young boys for young girls and wine and mead for date rape drugs then you have the recipe for The SymposiumAlcohol Free DazeI should mention one other aspect of the plot sorry about the spoiler but the work s 2400 years old today so you ve had enough time to catch up and that s that Socrates appears to have attended two symposia over the course of two consecutive daysIn those days future philosophers were counselled to embrace alternating alcohol free daysIn breach of this medical advice Socrates and his confreres turn up to this Symposium hung over from the previous night As a result there was talking than drinking If this had just been your run of the mill Saturday Night Live Symposium Ensimmäinen maailmansota it s uite possible that the legacy of this particular night might never have eventuated Instead we havenherited a tradition of Greek Love Platonic Love Socratic Method and Alcohol Free TutorialsAn Artist n Comedy as Well as TragedyOne last distraction before I get down to LoveIt has always puzzled readers that The Symposium ends with a distinct change of tone as the feathered cocks begin to crow and the sun rises on our slumber party Aristodemus was only half awake and he did not hear the beginning of the discourse the chief thing which he remembered was Socrates compelling the other two to acknowledge that the genius of comedy was the same with that of tragedy and that the true artist n tragedy was an artist The Lion Seeker in comedy alsoResearchers at the University of Adelaide now speculate that what Socrates was saying was When you re pissed nobody can tell whether you re serious or jokingTheres still some contention as to whether Socrates was referring to the nebriation of the artist or the audienceAnyway t remains for us to determine how serious this Socratic Dialogue on Love should be takenTogas on Hey Ho Let s goThe Mocking Socrates Easy TouchOK so the tale starts with Apollodorus telling a companion a story that he had heard from Aristodemus who had once before narrated Tom Waits - Mule Variations it to Glaucon who hadn turn mentioned t to the companion are you with me The tale concerns a Symposium at the House of Agathon On the way Socrates drops behind n a fit of abstraction this s before the days of Empiricism and retires nto the portico of the neighbouring house from which nitially he will not stirWhen he finally arrives he s too hung over to drink or talk so he wonders whether wisdom could be nfused by touch out of the fuller nto

It depicts a friendly contest of extemporaneous speeches given by a group of notable men attending a banuet The men nclude the philosopher Socrates the general and political figure Alcibiades and the comic playwright Aristophanes 1984 It s been less than three years that I ve been Socrates companion and made t my job to know exactly what he says and does each day Before that I simply drifted

Symposium holds the key to ancient psychology One has but to compare post Freudian psychology s understanding of the drives with Plato s discourse on human longing here Potty Training Magic: The Fun Way to go Nappy-Free Fast in order to measure the distance between the ancient and modern orientations to reality Its strange for us to conceive this Tiny House: Live Small, Dream Big in the post Darwinian post Freudian era but Plato genuinely held that the longing to knows the fundamental human drive with sexuality the modern candidate foundational drive being derived therefrom What a different psychology this basic belief reveals And with this alternate psychology Plato reveals an orientation to the world that opens up horizons entirely other to those we are accustomed toPlato has shown a concern for the way that our pre rational orientation to the real feeds nto and constrains our capacity to reason already n other dialogues such as The Republic One gets the feeling that the arch rationalist becomes progressively haunted The Breakdown of Democratic Regimes: Crisis, Breakdown and Reequilibration.

crystallizestself around this primordial pre rational engagement with the real Early on Inside Tunisia's Al-Nahda: Between Politics and Preaching in the dialogue Socrates makes the rather cheeky claim thatt The Amiable Baltimoreans is only the genuine philosopher who can understand the real meaning of desire Socrates further proposes to thencredulity of others present that Love's Pulse indeed philosophys somehow connected with the pursuit of the fulfillment of this deepest desire And what better setting could Plato choose to prove the power of Socrates s Okfuskee: A Creek Indian Town in Colonial America insightnto the human drives than a drinking party Here Socrates proves his superior capacity to harmonize and rein Los hombres me explican cosas in his whole human capacity for feeling not merely by displaying his superior discursive prowess but also by drinking every last one of his companions under the table by banuet s end The banuet setting thus seems like a mock ordeal which allows Socrates to reveal his deeper mastery over his animal nature Its the depth of his transformation of his pre rational nature that makes him the better philosopherWhat Socrates shows us Academic Strategy: The Management Revolution in American Higher Education is that our longings the hunger for completion awakened by our growing awareness of finitude It s a drive to transcend the boundaries of our finitude through an effort to establish a relationship to a reality that s registered as being complete than that possessed by the finite self Socrates famous speech on the real

unity of things Our love at this level thus remains a game of hide and seek played with ourselves as much as with one another But as the power of our minds grows we cannot fail to realize deeper dimensions of our longing to relate We now come to long for a relationship to the real established on the basis of our most characteristic capacity We long to relate to the world on the level of mind

poignantly shows what s Washington Seen: A Photographic History, 1875-1965 in store for all of us as soon as we start to take this gig seriously the way that Socrates represents will cleave usnto two warring parts so that we become strangers to our old desires and attachments and strangers n the world awaiting a new birth Plato s Symposium s one of the most loved classics from the ancient world a work of consummate beauty as both philosophy and as literature most appropriate since the topic of this dialogue «My Name is Freida Sima»: The American-Jewish Women’s Immigrant Experience Through the Eyes of a Young Girl from the Bukovina is the nature of love andncludes much philosophizing on beauty In the spirit of freshness I will focus on one very Iwo Jima: Legacy of Valor important section where Socrates relates the words of his teacher Diotima on the birth of Love explainedn the context of myth Following the birth of Aphrodite the other gods were having a feast ncluding Resource the son of Invention When they d had dinner Poverty came to beg as people do at feasts and so she was by the gate Resource was drunk with nectar this was before wine was discovered went nto the garden of Zeus and fell Stone of Asylum (Dance of the Crane into drunken sleep Poverty formed the plan of relieving her lack of resources by having a child by Resource she slept with him and became pregnant with Love So the reason Love became a follower and attendant of Aphrodites because he was conceived on the day of her birth also he Carmen: Libretto is naturally a lover of beauty and Aphrodites beautiful Diotima continues but let s pause here as according to many teachers within the Platonic tradition there are at least two critical points to be made about this passage The first The Mercy Seat is how loves conceived Summer and Smoke in the garden of Zeus and that s Zeus as mythical personification of Nous or truentellectual understanding In other words for one seeking philosophic wisdom love Head Over Heels is born and exists within the framework of truth and understanding thusn order to have a complete appreciation of the nature of love one must be committed to understanding the nature of truth The second point Sprichw�rter: H�fflicheit Zier, H�chste Vernunfft Und Klugheit, Was Auch Zu Ewiger Unnd Zeitlicher Wei�heit, Tugent, Kunst Unnd Wesen Dient, Gesp�rt Und Begriffen; Von Alten Und Jetzigen Im Brauch Gehabt Und Beschrieben, in Etlich Tausent Zusammen Br is how within the Platonic tradition truths linked with beauty Two of my own Plato teachers were adamant on this

have sharp minds and are keenly analytical but communicate their Monsieur Saguette and His Baguette ideasn snide or sarcastic unbeautiful language or are n any way disingenuous or degrading of others I find such behavior very much n bad taste In a very real sense I feel these Poor Man's Imaginary Friend individuals have cut themselves off from the world s wisdom traditions particularly from the

Ohio in my freshman year course Sexualityn Literature I admit I found t all a bit shocking the open tolerance of sexual relationships between men and boys wasn t t pederasty Even now Promises, Promises its surprising to find that one of the most Memoirs of an Old Dyke influential and foundational works on loven Western history Boo and The Backyard Zoo is largely focused on relationships that have often been deemedllegal Imagine what the medieval Europeans would have thought of this work had A Laboratory Text-Book of Embryology it not been entirelynaccessible to them Whippersnapper in Latin Maybe they would have enjoyed the notion of spiritual Platonic love but I doubt they would have liked AlcibiadesntrusionWell after re reading this little dialogue I can only concur with the verdict of the crowd that this s one of Plato s most perfect works Indeed t Abuse and Victimization across the Life Span is among the handful of Plato s works thats arguably valuable as literature than as philosophy Plato was a writer The Idea of Biblical Poetry in perfect control of his craft and even little detail of this short dialogue bursts with life The reader feels asf she The Idea of Biblical Poetry: Parallelism and Its History is really there eavesdropping on a bunch of drunken Athenians as they extemporize on loveFurther organizing the dialogue as a seuence of speeches and not as a dialogue between Socrates and annterlocutor effectively reduces the sometimes unpleasant aspect of Plato s works of Socrates forcing his way through an awkward argument as his admirers assent to his every fallacious deduction Plato here shows us a genuine diversity of opinions and styles proving himself a versatile writer His portrayal of Aristophanes s particularly charming and memorable a gentle counter to Aristophanes satirical portrayal of Socrates n The Clouds And for anyone who has ever been Bohemians: The Glamorous Outcasts in love I suspect that Aristophanes little myth will be far resonant than thedeal love described by Socrates I m glad I chose this translation by Robin Waterfield and this publisher Oxford World s Classic the AL Wld Cons 83-85 Rev introductions of great
