PHL240 Monday, October 3, 2011 -“life without EROS is meaningless”? -We could guess Socrates gets an erotic arousal about philosophy -but people get erotic arousal about anything -so, it’s more suitable to say ‘passion’; can be erotic passion or not… -there is a sense in which eros is stretched from the physical to the emotional and psychological in the minds of artists and philosophers… -might be problematic; not what the dialogue is about; not to show weird people getting ‘aroused’ by an argument, but the point is rather that every human being is ‘in so far as they are capable of eros, kind of, whether they know it or not, are philosophers’. -if they knew in their mind, they would be philsophers; alternative lifestyle. As good as the other lifestyle, but not better than… the essence of human desire -to grasp the enormity of this claim… if you have any erotic desire, that is evidence that you are either a philosopher, or could be a philosopher or just lost for not recognizing.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
