The article, which concerns the history of ancient philosophy, is dedicated to analysis of the Plato`s dialogue “Theages”. The detailed examination of the dialogue leads us to the conclusion, that there is a deep connection between “Theages” and other Plato’s dialogues, such as “Symposium” and “Theaetetus”. This is particularly true to the doctrine of the divine: the author claims the identity of daimonion (in “Theages”), Eros (in “Symposium”) and nameless God (in “Theaetetus”). This God essentially defines the relation of Socrates to the wisdom and this is why philosophy is the “science of love”. The author also draws attention to the dramatic, rhetorical and poetic aspects of the Plato`s “Theages” in order to demonstrate its pedagogical mission. Accordingly, the study of philosophy, as the author of the article holds, should also be considered as a lo ve-art. Prerequisite training in philosophy is synousia, a term, which is very difficult to translate unambiguously. Synousia describes the relationship of Socrates and his disciples. The author notes that this term has a homoerotic shade of meaning, which is important for understanding the educational ideology of Plato. The author argues that the strange fragments of “Theages” become deciphered by reading “Symposium” and “Theaetetus” and vice versa. This fact creates a dialogue of dialogues, in which “Theages” occupies an important place.
