Reading Plato’s dialogues implies, among other things, going in depth into the subtlety of a theatrical text in which the oral marks imposed in the logos put a strain on the written materiality of the text. In their wandering, the characters doubt, put forward arguments, persuade –or, in other words, seduce–. They also reformulate their statements, try to find the finest words to say the most truthful things. They seek, ultimately, to get closed to the Truth. Meanwhile, modern readers’ mind travels to the ancient Athens streets, setting for the philosophical speculation far away from the romantic and lonely traditional idea about philosophizing.
