Example text

But these ambiguities or ambivalences toward the discursive practices of philosophy and the theatre only present a partial solution to the constantly recurring dilemmas Plato’s Symposium 33 that Plato’s dialogues pose. In the Symposium the interactions between these discursive practices are triggered by the complex network of competitions beginning with the playwriting and the competition between the guests as to who can present the most worthy praise of Eros. And this competition gradually triggers a competition between competitions, giving rise to a kind of meta-competition.

Despite important historical and contextual differences among these concepts, they all raise questions about the effect of memories of home and the longing to return. Thus, for example, the “affliction” called nostalgia—the uncontrollable desire to return home from which soldiers in the battlefield stationed far away from home suffered—was originally a pathological state that frequently led to sudden death. Today nostalgia has rather become a kind of indulgence over things past, but something of the pain, the algos, still remains active.

Plato’s Symposium 25 In both these cases—in Apollodorus’s as well as in Socrates’ account of what they have heard from others—Plato, by drawing detailed attention to the technicalities of the transmission of knowledge, radically problematized the ways in which oral reports and oral wisdom serve as a source of knowledge. The issue of Plato’s written representation of Socratic philosophy is far too extensive to be examined in detail, but it is noteworthy that when Eryximachus proposes that the participants at the celebration should each praise Eros, he significantly adds, “If you agree, we can spend the whole evening in discussion, because I propose that each of us give as good a speech in praise of Love as he is capable of giving” (462, 177c–d).
