Book News Annotation:

Berg (Philosophy, Bellarmine University) presents an original analysis of the Symposium, one of Plato's most well-known and pivotal dialogues. Holding that all the speakers at the banquet (except Socrates) represent Athens and the Athenian enlightenment, the author suggests that the speech of Socrates articulates the relationship between Socrates and the Athenian enlightenment. Socrates' speech exposes the limitations of that enlightenment, argues Berg, and brings to light the irresolvable tension between Socrates and his philosophy and the city of Athens even at her most enlightened.
