Description
Interviewer: "To us Platonic love suggests some vaguely asexual or non-sexual affection. Is that really what you had in mind?"

Plato: "Not at all. You mean what we called philia, something like brotherly love. What I was really thinking of was eros. I imagine your society is quite familiar with the erotic. Well, what I was thinking of was that very thing, but apprehended in its true light rather than just its lowest manifestation. Rather than asexual or non-sexual, you might say it's hyper-sexual."

Presented as a comfortable chat between Plato and a time-traveling interviewer, this compact little book imagines what it would be like to spend and hour or two with the Hellenic Greek philosopher who learned from Socrates and taught Aristotle, over a cup of tea or coffee. The entertaining conversation is purely fictional, yet solidly based on biographical facts.
