In each work, Socrates as the quintessential philosopher is in two ways center stage, first, as a lover of wisdom sophia and discussion logos , and, second, as himself an inverter or disturber of erotic norms. In what follows, section 1 deals with the Lysis and Symposium. Sections 2—4 primarily with the Symposium alone. Section 5 deals with the Phaedrus. Section 6 with the closing section of the Symposium and with parts of the Ion , Protagoras , and Laws. Sections are not self-contained, however, and are intended to be read sequentially.

Eros and the good : wisdom according to nature
With breadth of learning and reflection, Gouinlock presents a searching examination of the nature of morality and the good life. Whether it be the trained philosopher, or the professional inquirer concerned with the moral life and its presuppositions, or any individual who seeks wisdom about human existence, the reader will find a wealth of challenging and rewarding ideas. In a candid, original, and disciplined analysis, Gouinlock contends that stability and fulfillment in life depend on specifiable natural conditions. These conditions are not mere conventions, and they are not indefinitely manipulable.
