Did Plato want to “screw” (english translation for “nique”) romantic love? Can romantic love be harmonious and fulfilling? Do we need to transcend eros to acquire salvation in love? For Plato “love is desire for the perpetual possession of the good” which cannot be found in another human being. Do we need to transcend the limitations inherent in an interpersonal relationship to fulfill our desire for the good and the beautiful. Shall we “shag” this now or later?
