really liked it
Read in October, 2007

How do I criticize a monumental figure like Plato? I'm not a student of philosophy, this was my first foray into it, but I did find this book surprisingly readable. interesting dialogues (true to its title) on love, friendship, the nature of the state (the first half of the book is more interesting than the second, maybe my energy for it waned, but I also think it was because of the topics). Got swept in by the intellectual testing and prodding of the famed Socratic method at work.
