Loving and Dying: A Reading of Plato's Phaedo, Symposium, and Phaedrus

Loving and Dying: A Reading of Plato's Phaedo, Symposium, and Phaedrus

Richard Gotshalk
4.6/5 (5 ratings)
Loving and Dying is a reading of three dialogues which, using the figure of Socrates conversing in three different concrete situations, in complementary fashion address death, love, and reflection, as matters central to finding and understanding life's meaning and to sharing in the kind of immortality that is open to a human being. The intent of the work is simply to bring to attention how the dialogues register as drama and how they achieve this provocation of the reader to reflection on these central matters in human life.
