In the Symposium, Alcibiades likens Socrates to Silenus and the satyr Marsyas, beings half human, half beast who, close to the god Dionysus, possess fabulous gifts that raise them above regular human society. Socrates epitomizes the precarious status of philosophy itself, which exists in a space between immanence and transcendence in relation to every field of human existence. In this field, I distinguish four axes, namely (in addition to philosophy itself), the narrative, the religious, and the political.
