philosophy Discussion Post

  

DIRECTIONS: You will submit a total of 3 separate posts for this unit.

1) Answer any THREE of  the nine questions listed below. You may pick three questions from the  same chapter or three questions from two different chapters. It’s  entirely up to you. These three posts must have a minimum of 100 words each. Anything less will result in a grade of ZERO without the possibility of a make-up post.       PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SUBMIT 3 SEPARATE POSTS: DO NOT ANSWER MORE THAN ONE QUESTION IN A SINGLE POST.    QUESTIONS:    Chapter 1: Plato’s Allegory of the Cave      1. What are some things the allegory suggests about the process of enlightenment or education?     2. The allegory presupposes that there is a distinction between appearances and reality. Do you agree? Why or why not?     3.  What sometimes happens to people when the illusion is shattered and  reality is revealed? Can you give an example from your own or a friend’s  experience?  

Chapter 2: Plato’s Euthyphro

4. What it is that makes Socrates “philosophical” while Euthyphro is not?

5. What sorts of questions does Socrates ask and what sorts of answers does Euthyphro give?

6. The dialogue ends inconclusively: Euthyphro  has not been able to arrive at a satisfactory definition of the pious.  Does this mean the whole discussion between Socrates and Euthyphro was a complete waste of time? Why or why not?


Chapter 3: Plato’s Apology of Socrates

7. Socrates  is famous for saying that “an unexamined life is not worth living for a  human being.” What does he mean by this? What’s so valuable about  examining one’s life?

8. When Socrates is suggesting that his “penalty” be free meals in the Prytaneum,  he compares himself to the victor in an Olympic race. He says that  while victory brings the Athenians only the appearance of success,  Socrates brings the reality of success. What service does Socrates think  he is doing for the Athenians that cannot be matched by the winner of  an Olympic race? How does examining the citizens of Athens bring them  true success?

9. Socrates  thinks that the person who is aware of his ignorance is wiser than the  person who thinks he knows something when he doesn’t. But if neither  person knows anything, how can one be wiser than the other? What kind of  wisdom could Socrates be referring to here?
