The poet Agathon hosts a party to celebrate his victory in the competitions for tragedy. His guests include Socrates, Aristophanes, Alcibiades, and other notables, who expound on the subject of love, each from a different point of view ? the mythical, the sexual, the poetic, and so on. Socrates introduces the notion of a non-physical form of love, which inspires wisdom and creativity.
