Section 9, Group 3 Socratarians
My group discussed the differing views on love by Plato and Aristophanes. Plato believed that you should date many people in life so that you can become more experienced and move up, but Aristophanes believed that there is one person you are truly meant to be with. We agreed that realistically one should use a combination of both. My group also mentioned how Socrates believed that lovers are interchangeable. On the topic of an "unexamined" life, we concluded that it is difficult to decide whether an unexamined life is not worth living if you don't define what an "unexamined" life would be.
