In this course we will read selections from Plato’s Symposium—a series of philosophical speeches about love—in Greek. The course is appropriate for anyone who has taken at least a year’s worth of Greek (including the Graecum). We will decide together which selections to translate, but will certainly read Aristophanes’ myth (which describes love as searching for your other half) and Socrates’ ladder of love. We will primarily translate into English, but you are welcome to translate first into German and then English, and we can discuss appropriate German translations.
