Socrates on the Art of Love
The Greek philosopher Socrates claimed that the only thing he really knew was the “art of love”. In this talk, we will focus on the different views of love found in Plato’s Symposium, their connection to Greek culture, and how they can help us think about the value of love in our own lives.
