Description

This is a video in my new Core Concepts series -- designed to provide students and lifelong learners a brief discussion focused on one main concept from a classic philosophical text and thinker. This video focuses on Plato's work, the Symposium, and specifically on the speech made by Pausanius. It focuses on his discussion of different legal and cultural approaches to male-male sexual relationships, particularly those falling under the rubric of "pederastia" (love of youths) Gregory B. Sadler is the president and co-founder of ReasonIO. The content of this video is provided here as part of ReasonIO's mission of putting philosophy into practice -- making complex philosophical texts and thinkers accessible for students and lifelong learners.
