In his brilliant dialogue, Symposium, Plato presents an imaginary dinner party set in Athens in 416 BC where the guests include Aristophanes, Socrates and the most popular Athenian of his day, star-athlete Alcibiades. The sequence of dazzling speeches culminates in Socrates' famous account of the views of Diotima, a prophetess who taught him that love is our means of trying to attain goodness.
