MEETING OUR TIMES
THE WINGS OF THE SOUL
A Reading from Plato’s Phaedrus by Vincent Roppolo
In this portion, Socrates is speaking to his pupil. It’s part of an argument whether sex is better with or without love. They are walking by the river.
“An idea keeps repeating itself in literature… When we come into this world as children, we bring the vision of heaven with us, and as we grow up that memory recedes. The ancient Greeks thought that the last memory that we retain of heaven is the memory of the beauty of the gods. Greeks also believed that heavenly creatures have wings.” ~ Vincent Roppolo
