Food for thought, as well as edibles from It's Greek to Me & presents for graduating Critical Theory concentrators.

Symposium: from the Greek symposion convivial gathering of the educated” (related to sympotes “drinking companion”), from syn- “together” + posis “a drinking.” Reflecting the Greek fondness for mixing drink, food, and intellectual discussion, the modern sense is especially from the word used as a title for one of Plato’s dialogues. The Greek plural is symposia, and the leader of one is a symposiarch.
