Key words: Plutarch, Plutarch’s Eroticus, Plato, Greek love, matrimony, gender studies, feminism, homosexuality

On the occasion of the symposium devoted to “Love in Plutarch”, this contribution was presented in order to prove to what extent Plutarch, above all in his Eroticus and from Platonic parameters, with the help of an elemental logic reasoning, Platonically corrects Plato so that eros and philia can finally be also attributed to conjugal love.
