essay 1

Socrates was a real person who was executed in Athens in 399 BCE. Unfortunately, none of his writings survive (if there ever were any). We know of him mostly through the writings of Plato, though Xenophon and Aristophanes also wrote about him.

This assignment is to write an essay about Socrates’ views on some subjects based on what we find in Euthyphro and Apology. The subjects are 1) the gods (here mention Euthyphro’s dilemma), 2) logic or systematic thinking, and 3) truth. (essay) (min. 800- max. 1100 words)
