  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Plato; Eros; Philosophy; Appetite; Desire.

In the "Symposium" and "Phaedrus" Plato transforms the coeval way of thinking about "eros". Since the time of Homer eros had been conceived as an appetite. Both appetites and eros are desires, but eros is a desire which cannot really be satisfied, because unlike an appetite, it is not a desire to possess an object, but rather arises from the perception of the value of people and things.
