Conclusions are drawn on the nature of the debaters political philosophies-on their potential inclination toward the advocacy or rejection of tyranny and on the role that their differing conceptions of eros played. It is suggested that the Platonic perspective on eros and tyranny remains an important way of looking at the nature of tyranny, even in modernity.
