His dialogue is structured artistically.

This work is presented here with a literary-oriented introduction, the Greek text has been checked carefully, the German translation aims to be readable and is supplemented by detailed notes. Four essays by various authors are included: one on the Eros cult in Thespiai, one on the philosophical aspects, one on the social background of Plutarch's thoughts on sexuality and marriage, and one on the Christian concept of love.

About this title

Synopsis:

English summary: Plutarch gives Plato's philosophy of love a new direction by applying its basic ideas to marital love and by defending the significance of sexuality for personality development and human bonding. His dialogue is structured artistically. It takes place during the festival of Eros in Thespiai, a background plot has the characteristics of a comedy, and the author himself plays a newly-wed young man. This work is presented here with a literary-oriented introduction, the Greek text has been checked carefully, the German translation aims to be readable and is supplemented by detailed notes. Four essays by various authors are included: one on the Eros cult in Thespiai, one on the philosophical aspects, one on the social background of Plutarch's thoughts on sexuality and marriage, and one on the Christian concept of love. German description: Plutarch gibt der Liebesphilosophie Platons eine neue Wendung: er ubertragt deren Grundgedanken auf die eheliche Liebe, und er verteidigt die Bedeutung der Sexualitat fur Personlichkeitsentwicklung und menschliche Bindung. Sein Dialog ist kunstvoll gebaut. Er findet wahrend des Eros-Festes in Thespiai statt (religiose Dimension); eine Hintergrundhandlung hat Zuge einer Komodie (Entfuhrung eines Junglings durch eine reife Witwe); der Autor lasst sich selbst als frischverheirateten, verliebten jungen Mann auftreten (doppelte Autorenperspektive). Die Schrift wird hier vorgelegt mit einer literarisch orientierten Einfuhrung, kritisch durchgesehenem griechischen Text, einer moglichst lesbaren deutschen Ubersetzung und eingehenden Einzelerklarungen. Vier Essays verschiedener Autoren kommen hinzu: uber den Eros-Kult in Thespiai, uber die philosophischen Aspekte der Schrift, uber sozialgeschichtliche Voraussetzungen der Gedanken uber Sexualitat und Ehe, uber den christlichen Liebesbegriff.
