The First Alcibiades is inserted into the theme of the educational dimension of Platonic philosophy and is a portrait of the Socratic Eros in his pursuit and dedication to the young Athenian who has the name of dialogue. The path of dialogue culminates in the justification of the positivity of the aporia which Alcibiades has fallen after the Socratic elenchos: the aporia is the first movement of the awakening of critical reflection in which are subdued those who wish to follow the path of philosophy. This research will be contemplated with an introductory study based on the general theme briefly explained above, besides the proposal of a new translation in Portuguese from the edition of the Greek text of J. Burnet (Platonis Opera, Tomus II, 1967).
