Human desire and the nature of friendship are explored in the dialogue between Socrates and the boys Lysis and Menexenus. Socrates's inquiries are made with awareness of the unrequited love for Lysis of another boy, Hippothales, who remains silent and unseen throughout the conversation. In the end, Socrates admits that how and why friendships are formed remain unanswered questions.
