- The Socratic method consists of the question and answer mode of inquiry. It draws from the existence of the person. It does not impose certain assumptions of the interlocutors. It releases the person from his/her own unchecked assumptions. It makes the person question his/her own assumptions.
- In the famous dialogs of Socrates, The Republic attempts to analyze society rationally and change the state so that individuals could attain the Socratic goal of moral excellence. For Socrates, the just state could not be founded on tradition because tradition was not based on rational thinking, nor on the doctrine of power and strength being right.
- While Socrates is awaiting his execution, many of his friends, including Crito, arrive with a foolproof plan for his escape from Athens to live in exile voluntarily. Socrates calmly debates with each friend over the moral value and justification of such an act.
- The Apology, written by Socrates? student Plato, is a narrative of Socrates addressing the Athens?s Court of Justice for which he states he is on trial for being ?an evil doer, and a curious person, who searches into things under the earth and in heaven, and he makes the worse appear the better cause; and he teaches the aforesaid doctrines to others? (Harwood 201).
- Socrates made the correct choice to continue with his “Apology” after he received this guilty verdict. Socrates continued his defense after he received the guilty verdict for several reasons. I think the reasons why he continued his defense are: he wanted to acknowledge the Athenians who voted for his acquittal and guilt, and the jury still had to decide Socrates’ punishment.
- The Trojan War took place in approximately the 13th century The ancient Greeks defeated the City of Troy The Trojan War started after an incident at the wedding feast of Peleus, the king of Thessaly, and Thetis, a sea goddess All the gods and goddesses of Mt Olympus had been invited except Eris, the goddess of discord Eris was offended and tried to stir up trouble among the guests at the feast She sent a golden apple inscribed ?For the most beautiful ? Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite each claimed the apple as their own Paris judged the quarrel and awarded the apple to Aphrodite because she had pro
- The Socratic Method of philosophy is basically a series of question leading to an answer. In order for this method to work though, two conditions must be met. The first one is that the interlocutor has to say what he believes. The second is that the answers must be kept short.
- The topic of discussion, which will be the focus of this paper, will center on three major questions. The first is why Socrates believes that he is the only true statesman in Athens. The second is why Callicles believes that he is the true exemplar of statesmanship.
- Can contemporary discourse presume a community of interest? In order to answer this question, one is forced to first answer the question, can language be used to reveal anything new? If the answer is yes, then how can it do this and how can we employ it to do this for us.
- The pursuit for the meaning of knowledge, a search the scholar Socrates had great difficulty achieving. He takes us into a world of questioning and makes us contemplate our thoughts of the particular concept on hand. In order to focus on the statements given to him, which were to defuse his drive of the question, he analyzed.
- Socrates, as known by Renault, was a beautiful creature. Not physically beautiful, but internally and fundamentally beautiful. It was he who said: When you assume the show of any virtue, you open a credit account, which one day you will have to meet or go broke (pp.
- With Socrates came a revolution in all manners of thought. As, perhaps, the most influential of philosophers, and also one of the best known, it is truly unfortunate he left the future so little of his theories. Only through the writings of his students have we any idea of his philosophy.
- Socrates was a Greek Philosopher who spent most of his live searching for truth. Socrates is considered philosophy s martyr because he was more concerned about righteous living then he was about winning arguments. There are no primary sources of Socrates life so all information about his life and death is based on secondary sources.
- Philosophy shifted from natural philosophy, which was concerned with the nature of the physical realm, to classic philosophy, which compared the process of knowing and understanding. The leader of this new philosophical movement was a commoner named Socrates.
- The idea of justice has been very prominent in the readings and discussions that we have had this quarter. The Old Testament and Plato’s Republic both give definitions and ideals of justice, but sometimes these ideas are contrasting or even hypocritical in their respective practices.
- The concept of heroism is a central theme in Greek mythology. Achilles, the main character in Homer’s The Iliad, accurately depicts the concept of a tragic hero. Throughout his many experiences during the Trojan War, he reflects heroic qualities, and earns his name as the purest, the highest and “the best of the Achaians.
- The Greeks had a tragic world view. I believe that a tragic world view is a view of the world in which there is little hope for any progress; everything grows, matures, and dies. The values taught by such a tragic world are bravery, fate, humanism, and reasoning.
- Perhaps Socrates most important gift was the ability to stay timeless. However, his teachings were cut short when he was sentenced to death. In his speech “The Apology”, he claimed that a “good man cannot be harmed either in life or death”. If Socrates was right in this statement, then those righteous people on earth have nothing to fear, not even death.
- The argument of principality is a deep issue discussed in The Crito. Socrates was a solid and true believer in morality and the role that it plays in discovering principle. The argument put forth is that principle creates an honorable, or in more plain terms, an incorruptible life.
- The question of right and wrong has been battled over for centuries. Many conservatives still believe that truth is absolute, while others disagree, saying that truth is relative. I believe that truth is absolute, and therefore, it is never right to do wrong.
