“Fame is the perfume of heroic deeds,” stated Socrates many centuries ago, and we at Diotima Strategies believe that fame is an honorable pursuit. As stated in Plato’s Symposium, Socrates gives credit to Diotima, his mentor and guide from his youth on the philosophy of the Ladder of Love. He admired Diotima for her wisdom and counsel. Reading between the lines, we like to say that Diotima made Socrates famous.
“I am persuaded that all men do all things, and the better they are, the more they do them, in the hope of the glorious fame of immortal virtue, for they desire the immortal,” stated Diotima.
The other reason we look to Diotima is that, like Socrates, we look upon fame pursued for the right reason as honorable. Diotima stated in Plato’s Symposium that all humans desire immortality. The first level is the desire for all to procreate and see our namesake live on for generations to come. The second level is to pursue a worthy cause associated with our name, and finally, the third level is to have our name memorialized for future generations.
Legacy brings purpose and meaning to our lives.
