The Phaedrus (Greek Φαῖδρος) is a dialogue by Plato which includes discussions of the nature of love and of the art of rhetoric. The treatment of the latter subject includes one of Plato's most significant discussions of the uses and limitations of writing as a form of communication. Together with the examination of poetry in the Ion, this is of special interest for media studies and the understanding of the transition from an oral to a literate culture in classical Greece.
