Symposium In Platos Symposium the second speaker Pausanias categorizes love by the main idea love may be good or bad depending on the performance of the two lovers Pausanias acknowledged the importance of performance by using these words turn out in this or that way according to the mode of performing them and when well done they are all good and when wrongly done they are evilPlato Symposium Pg126 I agree with Pausanias because our performing style makes our work good or bad For example when the nuclear fission technology was founded scientists thought that all the energy problems of the world be solved When they used that technology in atom bombs and in Chernobyl thousands of people died and permanent damages are made to our environment Then Pausanias states that the noble love is the heavenly love which is love of soul rather than body The other kind of love the common love is the love of common people and it is random I disagree with Pausanias about the common love I think common love is as holier as the heavenly love and humans need that kind of love because of their biological desires These biological desires are valid because of the Zeus separation of two sexes as a punishment Another point about common love is that it is essential for the mankind to survive If it didnt exist in the beginning there wont be any human living on the Earth now
