A Critique and Understanding of Plato?s Theory on Love Plato provides a persuasive theory on love throughout his exchange of ideas in the Symposium and the Phaedrus. However, there are three objections worth arguing to Plato?s theory which include the following: 1) his characteristics of love are expressed from a cultural setting (in relation to sexual attitudes and perceptions of beauty), 2) Plato focuses on a love of assets rather than of persons, and 3) Plato?s theory on love is self-centered
