LA MAESTRA DE SÓCRATES

Genre: Historic Novel
Topic: Fiction
Number of pages:

Year 440 BC. The politician and orator Pericles asks for the help of priestess Diotima of Mantinea to rid Athens of the plague. During the purification ceremony, a thirty-year-old Socrates is fascinated by the wisdom of this woman. The philosopher soon discovers through his dialogues with Diotima that he knows nothing about love and begins to learn about the mysteries of Eros.

Socrates’ Teacher presents the figure of a brave woman ahead of her time whose ideas are the origin of the concept of Platonic love. In Plato’s Banquet, Socrates reveals to the rest of the guests: “Everything I know about love I learned from her”.
