FIERRO, María Angélica. Platón y los privilegios de los amantes. Nova tellus [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.2, pp.167-195. ISSN 0185-3058.

According to the most traditional interpretations in the Symposium and the Phaedrus, Plato scorns love and poetry in their usual form. On the other hand, according to some new ways of reading these same dialogues, he would be presenting two different conceptions of love in a tragic conflict: the philosopher’s impersonal love for the Idea against love as the passion for an individual. Here a different understanding of this issue is suggested according to which Plato would be valuing the experience of falling in love, insofar as it is appropriate to communicate faithfully the truth about ἔρως, although lovers, as well as poets who narrate their love experience, are only able to comprehend the transcendental meaning of it by doing philosophy.

Palavras-chave : amor; Banquete; ἔρως; Fedro; filosofía; Platón; poética; Sócrates; verdad.
