I recently had the pleasure of taking a class on Plato’s Symposium, reading through the majority of the text, with discussion about the philosophy within. As a result, I translated the entirety of the dialogue, with some notes. Since it might be useful for someone out there, I’m embedding my notes below as a PDF. They’re handwritten (and my handwriting is awful), and not everything is going to be correct (I definitely made some mistakes), so don’t take it as a perfect translation! The two main commentaries I consulted while translating this are Dover’s commentary and Steadman’s commentary, both of which are excellent resources.
