  • Agathon's Account Of Love
    1,888 words
    The Accounts of Eros in the 'Symposium " The word love carries with it many, many different interpretations. In modern day, our views on what is appropriate love is much different from the views from the time of Socrates and Plato. To them love was eros, a direct translation of the word love. However, the word itself wasn't the only thing that was different about love. In Plato's 'Symposium', there is a celebration for Agathon. He had just won a dramatic contest in Athens, Greece two nights ago....

    The Hunchback of Notre-Dame Love is a universal language.

Many people cannot even help whether or not they fall in love. There are many types of love and they need not be between members of opposite sexes.

  • Agathon View Of Eros
    706 words
    Plato How do we know if love is a god or just a little baby we call cupid that flies around during Valentines Plates Symposium is a piece of work that is dedicated to Eros the god of love. I choose to disuse Agathons and Socratess speeches because they are both similar in subject, but opposite in opinion. Socratess ideas on Eros, identify him as a spirit in-between beauty and good. He is also in-between love and knowledge. In Socratess form of Eros, Eros is not seen as a god who is contrary to A...

  • Very Powerful Level Of Love
    1,397 words
    It is rather difficult to speak of love in an original sense today. If someone were to ask an individual to define love, a common response would be, "love cannot be explained, it cannot be defined". This answer would be acceptable if love was equally felt for and between all people. But anyone would have to agree to the fact that there are different degrees and levels of love. Someone would not love his or her family members the same way they would his or her spouse. Love varies between differen...

  • Actual Definition Of Romance
    344 words
    When I was assigned this topic to write about, I immediately thought of Eros. The ancient Greek word that describes the romantic side of love. Philos and Agape are really more spiritual in nature, but Eros, now that's a physical love. I envision Eros as the sweaty fumbling in the back of old Chevrolet's, and the fire lit evenings where everything seems to go just right and the sex is perfect, And even in the dark, rent by the hour hotel rooms where men and women with no names briefly join and th...
