Diotima's Ladder of Love

Diotima's Ladder of Love known as Plato’s ladder of love or Plato’s ladder of Eros is a philosophy of different types of love that originated in Plato's Symposium. Socrates had a speech contest of praising the goddess of love. In the end, they summarized the ideas based on the teachings of Diotima. There are six types of love, each kind is put on a rung of a ladder; the ladder represents the ascent of love from pure physical attraction to more psychological one. The ladder of love was mentioned only in the Symposium, a philosophical text by Plato that depicts a series of speech contests from notable men in Ancient Greece. There are on-going debates on. Furthermore, Diotima's ladder of love has a religious connection, is taken up in the Christian mystical tradition, most notably in Dante's Commedia; this was interpreted by hidden messages used in the writing by Plato. Based on the Symposium, in Ancient Greece around 416 BC, Agathon hosted an all-male dinner party. During the event, the guests decided to hold a speech contest, in which each of them delivered a lecture in praise of Eros, the god of Love.

Phaedrus compared love to a deity. Love discourages them through shame from the disgraceful deed and inspires them through the pride of honorable success. Pausanias hypothesized. 1) Pandemian or Common Love god who presides the normal relationship, including temporary physical attraction, connection or interest to both living and non-living things. 2) Uranian or Heavenly Love god who concerned with the higher level of love, the love, beyond just physical features and the love of senes. Eryximachus made a speech upon the love for various topics: medicine, gymnastics and religion. According to the Greek ideal, “moderation in everything”, he suggested that it is all right to have only the lower or Pandemian love as long as an individual is satisfied with it. Aristophanes told a tale of how human were double of what we are now, 2 heads, 2 arms, 2 legs and so on, but when our ancestors tried to overpower the gods, they split them in two as a punishment. Since all of us have been yearning with a desire for wholeness.

He believed that men and women who are lovers marry and have children — not because they want to, but from the duty to complete themselves as they lost the other half. Therefore, Aristophanes believes the focused on the concept of “sexual orientation” Agathon stated “Love divests us of all alienation from each other” and “gathers us together in social meetings, dances and feasts.” “Love is the spirit of this church.” Socrates summarized all the speeches and recalled Diotima's teaching, “the science of things relating to Love”. Diotima began with saying that if a man is normal, he will fall in love with one particular beautiful body, he must consider the similarities of the beauty in different bodies. If he understands that all bodies are beautiful he will become a lover of all bodies, not just one. Next, he must realize that the physical beauty is impermanent, unlike souls. Whenever he encounters with other individuals that have beauty within their spirits and if the bodies aren't attractive, he will fall in love to the immaterial part.

From this, he will learn to contemplate and appreciate what those people with beautiful souls create, institutions. His attention should ascend from institutions to science, so now he will accept the beauty of every aspect of knowledge, and lastly, once he sees the beauty in a wide horizon, his vision of the beauty will not be anything, of the flesh. It will be neither words, nor knowledge, nor a something that exists in something else, it will be the beauty of beauty itself that he loves. Plato mentioned the steps of love by putting it under the teaching of Diotima to Socrates; the higher the steps, the more intellectual it is. To be able to climb the ladder, one must understand the prior ladder thoroughly. First: Love for a particular body Love is a desire for physical features. An individual tends to get attracted to. Different particular bodies trigger different individual. Second: Love for all bodies When an individual recognizes the physical features that he is attracted to and understand that many bodies can have the beauty.

Love is express towards all beautiful bodies in the lover's view, not just a particular body. He sees beauty in all body and learns to love the differences. Third: Love for souls The stage in which physical features are put aside and spiritual and moral beauty trigger love. One will fall in love with beautiful minds in this step. Fourth: Love for laws and institutions Love for the practice, custom or foundation that derived from people with beautiful souls. Fifth: Love for knowledge When an individual turns his attention to all kinds of knowledge and love that there is knowledge to acquire everywhere. Sixth: Love for love itself An individual sees the beauty in its form and loves the beauty of love as it is; every particular beautiful thing is beautiful because of its connection to this Form. The lover who has ascended the ladder apprehends the Form of Beauty in a kind of vision not through words or in the way that other sorts of more ordinary knowledge are known. One of the common debates is on what happens to the lower rungs of the ladder when one climbs to the higher steps.

Some scholars view higher steps of the ladder of love as more important than the lower ones. As someone ascent the ladder, he abandons the love for lower subjects. For instance, if one learns to love the body of soul, he will no longer enjoy sensual pleasure of the body and might loathe it as temptation. If on

Ibrahim Al-Buleihi

Ibrahim Al-Buleihi is a Saudi liberal writer, a member of the Saudi Shura Council. Albleahy has held a range of positions in business throughout his life. Aside from his position on the Shura Council, he is involved in a variety of organizations in Saudi civil society. While he is a devout Muslim, he is critical of the way Islam is publicly practised and the degree to which modern Muslim societies are governed by it; the central concern of his writings is the relative decline of Arab and Islamic civilization, compared to the other civilizations of the world. From his studies he has concluded that Western Civilization has several deep cultural principles that make it more dynamic and more open-minded, therefore able to develop faster, through empowering individuality and independent thinking; these principles developed in the West over centuries, beginning in Ancient Greek philosophy and gaining power in the Age of Enlightenment. He concluded that other cultures, such as Japan and Israel were able to advance to a high level of development and freedom only by taking and incorporating these crucial principles from the West.

By incorporating these principles in their culture, countries such as Japan managed to invigorate their culture and prevent it from stagnating, while matching the West in power and standard of living. He blames the failure of Arab societies to develop and innovate on their refusal to learn from other civilizations or to criticize the principles of their own society, he advocates the incorporation of modern Science and critical thinking in the heart of Arab culture, as it was in Japan. Thus while Arab public society would develop along free and self-critical lines, the heritage of Islam would still provide the spiritual backbone of Arab civilization, his concern with the decline of the condition of the Arabs has led him to conclude that "... the situation in Saudi Arabia is sad and shameful, so it is necessary not only to be concerned but to be anxious. I learned early in my life that a dreadful flaw afflicts the lives of others, but at first I did not understand the reasons. My deep anxiety impelled me to study our history and culture in depth in search of the source of the flaw, led me to devote attention to the triumphant Western civilization, beginning with Greek philosophical thought, continuing through the political, scientific and other achievements of the West.

I became convinced that Western civilization is exceptional and pioneering, is not an extension of the previous civilizations: it is civilization par excellence. The excellence of the West lies not in its accomplishments in the sciences and technology, but rather, these accomplishments are the outgrowth of the West's respect for profit, the free system, its liberty, the establishment of government in the service of the people—the government belongs to the people, they do not belong to it as like in all other countries of the world; this is a qualitative change, unprecedented in human history, the source of everything that the human being experiences of the amazing changes in all aspects of life."He has written a book titled The Qualitative Changes in Human Civilization. The "Young Saudi Artists Exhibition" of 2009 was presented under his auspices.
