I am thoroughly fascinated by Alcibiades I for the dizzyingly intense thought that goes into this dialogue I was a little confused near the beginning with regard to how to read it and follow the argumentsBut the way Socrates spoke of the nature of man and a love relationship between him and Alcibiades developed gets really engrossing near the end It is through a ligamental and relational connection of souls the real persons that are above the bodies that this philosophical eroticism develops so to speak Since Socrates remember is a “lover” And love is something that thoroughly fascinated Socrates and by extension Plato Love with all its transcendent overpowering counterintuitive forceI read Carnes Lord’s translation of the dialogue for an ancient philosophy class I’m taking this semester

Sons Alcibiades needs Socrates The Athenian youth is almost persuaded by Socrates' reasoning Socrates' attempts to win Alcibiades away from politics fall on deaf ears For many years the authenticity of this dialogue has been debated. A timely reminder of the harm that can be done to a state ruled by those who lack self knowledge and virtueThis is the first of twelve Platonic dialogues recommended to be read in order by the Neoplatonic scholar Iamblichus I am following this course by way of experiment Interestingly he doesn't include the Republic I was slightly thrown that this first dialogue might not actually be by Plato at all and wasn't included in my 'complete' Plato It does work as a nice straightforward starting point before we plunge into the heavy metaphysical stuffGorgias is next on the list
