9780941051569: Plato's Symposium (Focus Philosophical Library)

This is an English translation of Plato account of an important dialogue on the nature of love between Phaedrus, Pausanias, Eryximachus, Aristophanes, Agathon, Socrates and Alcibiades.

Focus Philosophical Library translations are close to and are non-interpretative of the original text, with the notes and a glossary intending to provide the reader with some sense of the terms and the concepts as they were understood by Plato’s immediate audience.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Back Cover:

English translation. Introduction and glossary. The glossary of key terms is a unique addition to Platonic literature by which concepts central to each dialogue are discussed and cross-referenced as to their occurrences throughout the work. In such a way students are encouraged to see beyond the words into concepts.

About the Author:

Avi Sharon is a professor of Classics and has taught in New York, Boston, and Athens, Greece. He is active as a translator of ancient Greek, Italian and Hebrew and has published in such journals as Arion, Partisan Review, and Dialogos. He is the 1996 recipient of the Alexander Onassis Fellowship for scholars of Greek.
