Transcript: Wisdom does not flow like water Plato’s Critique of Pederasty Pederasty Background Symposium Pederasty My Project Pausanias' Speech Pausanias' Speech Two Aphrodites Uranian Heavenly Pandemos Common Text Text Pictures Pictures "Here, Socrates, lie down alongside me, so that by my touching you, I too may enjoy the piece of wisdom that just occurred to you while you were in the porch. It is plain that you found it and have it, for otherwise you would not have come away beforehand." Agathon and Socrates “It would be a good thing, Agathon, if wisdom were the sort of thing that flows from the fuller of us into the emptier, just by our touching one another, as the water in wine cups flows through a wool thread from the fuller to the emptier. For if wisdom too is like that, then I set a high price on my being placed alongside you, for I believe I shall be filled from you with much fair wisdom. My own may turn out to be a sorry sort of wisdom, or disputable like a dream; but your own is brilliant and capable of much development, since it has flashed out so intensely from you while you are young; and yesterday it became conspicuous among more than thirty thousand Greek witnesses." "You are outrageous, Socrates," Agathon said. "A little later you and I will go to court about our wisdom, with Dionysus as judge, but now first attend to dinner." how water flows Principle at play When they do engage in a contest about love Timeline YEAR Alcibiades' Speech Socrates, he claims, is like “those silenuses that sit in the shops of herm sculptors, the ones that craftsman make holding reed pipes or flutes; and if they are split in two and opened up they show they have images of gods within.” (215b) Alcibiades' Speech You, in my opinion,' I said, 'have proved to be the only deserving lover of mine; and it seems to me that you hesitate to mention it to me. Now I am in this state: I believe it is very foolish not to gratify you in this or anything else of mine—my wealth or my friends—that you need; for nothing is more important to d me than that I become the best possible; and I believe that, as far as I am concerned, there is no one more competent than you to be a fellow helper to me in this. So I should be far more ashamed before men of good sense for not gratifying a man like you than I should be before the many and senseless for gratifying you.' Seduction Scene 'Really, my dear Alcibiades, you're no sucker if what you say about me is really true and there is some power in me e through which you could become better. You must see, you know, an impossible beauty in me, a beauty very different from the fairness of form in yourself. So if, in observing my beauty, you are trying to get a share in it and to exchange beauty for beauty, you are intending to get far the better deal. For you are trying to acquire the truth of beautiful things in exchange for the seeming and opinion of beautiful things; and you really have in mind to exchange "gold for bronze." But blessed one do consider better: Without your being aware of it—I may be nothing. Thought, you know, begins to have keen eyesight when the sight of the eyes starts to decline from its peak; and you are still far from that.' Conclusion conclusion If Socrates were to have sex with Alcibiades, he would perpetuate: 1) the idea that people can make each other wise. impact: prevent Alcibiades from realizing his ignorance about wisdom 2) Alcibiades belief that his physical attractiveness is the most important thing about him impact: the belief could harm Alcibiades as he begins to decline from his physical peak, when “Thought begins to have keen eyesight.” (219a) 3) Socrates would be no better than the sophists who cannot acknowledge the ways in which they are ignorant, and thus, risk self-deception. Advantages Advantages to my account: -Fits with the well-known picture of a Socrates who: 1) proclaims his own ignorance. 2) critiques the Sophists for i. both not acknowledging what they do not know ii. exchanging money for wisdom -Makes explicit the way Plato critiques the customs of his time -Throws into question a vision of Socrates as someone who consistently denies bodily urges -Makes clear that the container model is supposed to function in opposition to the image of pregnancy and birth. Accounts of “Plato’s Appropriation of Reproduction” run these two images together.

Illinois Presentation Conclusion Thank you for listening. This presentation was just a bit of extra information that I wanted to share with you. there are some interesting facts. Overall Illinois is a historic yet modern state with many things to offer. By Clarissa Dakin :) The History of Illinois How does Migration affect Illinois? Interesting Facts Crime and the Environment 1) Walt Disney was born in Chicago. 2) The world's longest street is in Chicago - Western Ave. 3) The world's largest gum manufacturer is in Chicago - William Wrigley. 4) The world's first Ferris Wheel was at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago. 5) Illinois is only the 15th state to allow gay marriage 6) The Chicago River is dyed green on St. Patrick's Day. 7) The world's first skyscraper was built in Chicago.. 8) The first aquarium opened in Chicago. 9) The state snack of Illinois is popcorn. 10) Chicago has more than 45,000,000 visitors per year. Illinois Obviously, we can tell that if there is an increase in population there will also be a rise in waste generation and pollution. Over the years, because of immigration, there will be a new need for landfill sites, because of the rise in waste disposal. Illinois has many lakes and rivers flowing through it, which means that even though there are lots of immigrants, this will not affect water consumption. According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, there has been a serious increase in prisoners over recent years. Now there are more than 35,500 people in state prisons, of which over 2,000 prisoners are immigrants. This shows that Illinois is suffering a higher crime rate. Illinois is now the 6th largest state in the Nation however it has not grown much for some decades. Its 1960 population was just over ten million, compared to 11.4 million in 1990. Migration out of Illinois to other states has been increasing in recent years, which means that there is a low growth rate. Native-born Illinoisans are migrating out of the state, while different cultures are immigrating in. This means that over time there are lots of different cultures living in Illinois. According to the Chicago-based Latino Institute, immigrants earn 20% less than native-born Illinoisans, and as there are less native-born Illinoisans in the state than before, this could mean that the state could suffer as it is getting less income from wages. Also, according to the same study, Illinois population will rise from 11 million to 14 or 15 million. This means that the state will have to build at least 400 more schools to fit in the children that are immigrating.
