Item Description...
This is the first full-length study of the Symposium to be published in English, and one of the first English works on Plato to take its bearings by the dramatic form of the Platonic dialogue, a thesis that was regarded as heterodox at the time but which today is widely accepted by scholars of the most diverse standpoint. Rosen was also one of the first to study in detail the philosophical significance of the phenomenon of concrete human sexuality, as it is presented by Plato in the diverse characters of the main speakers in the dialogue. His analysis of the theoretical significance of pederasty in the dialogue was highly controversial at the time, but is today accepted as central to Plato's dramatic phenomenology of human existence.

Rosen discusses a variety of topics that had previously been neglected in the secondary literature, including the problem of the hybristic nature of the philosopher, the poetical dimension of Plato's conception of philosophy, and the theoretical implication of the difference between Platonic writing and Socratic conversation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
All you ever wanted to know about Symposium  Dec 3, 1999
I thought I understood the Symposium. I had a copy of Allen's commentary and was truly satisfied. Then this one fell into my hands. Sometimes the depth of Rosen's erudition is hard to take, but then which would you prefer 5 watts or 50 watts per channel. Sure, this is probably more than I want to know right now, so I'll read it again later and it will probably be a different book by then. Rosen is no babysitter. This is a very great book, but it is also serious scholarship. If you don't want the brainburn associated with reading someone who comes to conclusions that are often over your head (I speak here from experience) get Allen's book or the Cliff notes and leave this one alone. Moreover, the style is scholarly dry as dust. I like that. If you don't leave this one alone. This is the best, more detailed and probably definite commentary on Plato and Eros (until someone comes out with a commentary on the Symposium and the Phaedrus together that matches this one in depth).
