Agora Foundation Online Seminar Series on Love – Symposium by Plato

May 23 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$25.00

Online Seminar Series on Love – 
Symposium by Plato
Saturday, May 23, 2020 

Othello said about himself that he “loved not wisely but too well.” It seems that one can love things too much, but can one really love someone too much? Does the answer to that question depend on what is meant by love? Perhaps more fundamentally: are there different kinds of love? This series will devote itself to a discussion of the mystery and majesty of love

Future Readings in the Series:
Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics (Bk. 8 and 9 edited)
Augustine, Sermon on Love
Dostoevsky, A Gentle Creature
Ibsen, A Doll’s House
Shakespeare, Othello
Sigrid Unset, Gunnar’s Daughter
Flannery O’Connor, The Lame Shall Enter First
C.S. Lewis, Four Loves
