AbstractIn a famous scene at the end of Plato's symposium, after a high-minded philosophical discussion about the nature of love at a festive dinner party had degenerated into a drunken free-for-all, only three of the guests were sober enough to continue the conversation: the philosopher Socrates, the tragic poet Agathon, and the comic poet Aristophanes.
