Plutarch's Symposium or Table-Talk is a collection of dialogues purporting to reproduce the after-dinner conversation of Plutarch and his friends on a number of occasions in different cities. Discussions--at times very lively--cover a wide range of philosophical and scientific questions as well as historical subjects. Some deal with the form and pleasures of the dinner party itself. Plutarch's abiding interest in the ethical implications of customs and ideas is evident throughout.
