The principles are never really revealed in this video, perhaps the next one in the series I can gain more insight. Important parts of text first paragraph, “How did you survive the...

Dialogue(s): theaetetus Sections: 165e-168a Technical Issues: Unfortunately the original videotape recording had no sound for the first 24½ minutes. During that time, the camera also did not zoom in to the board so we couldn't pick up anything written there. Left with no meaningful aural or visual content, and since it would have only frustrated viewers, we cut it out. We surmise that the reading began at stephanus 165 and covered the whole section of Socrates' long monologue in which he says...

From Stefan: Well it was an interesting video, a little more discussion and less reading this time which was great (I personally prefer that). Mr. [Ken] King did a fine job in getting things started, though the occult and dense material in that section did call for some additional expansion by Pierre. It is a work that needs a certain background because of its profundity and I can imagine the confusion by those more new to it. But now the details again: Book(s): 1 Chapter(s): X Topics Covered:...

Dialogue(s): symposium Stephanus Sections Covered: 201c-206b, 210a-212a Notes: Session begins with a reading of Socrates’ speech and his dialogue with Diotima on the subject of Love. Question raised, “what about beauty being in the eye of the beholder?” Pierre responds with this being true to an extent, but this involves both a perception and a judgment.
