Question
what is beauty in plato's symposium?

Answer
Dear Hunter,

Since this question is a very much debated one and there are many books and papers on this issue, I will put it simply, even at the risk of reductionism, that 'beauty' in Plato's symposium is essentially goodness.

With best wishes,
Swami Narasimhananda
