Description

Two important dialogues offer crucial insights into mystical and aesthetic aspects of Platonic doctrine. "Symposium" attempts to find the ultimate manifestation of the love that controls the world, leading to mystic union with eternal and supercosmic beauty. "Phaedrus" discusses the psychology of love, resulting in the concept of the familiar Platonic "forms" as objects of transcendental emotion.show more
