I believe that Socrates is innocent because he defends himself truthfully with effect. He uses sound arguments and he is passionate about philosophy. Socrates did nothing to gain in life and did not want a high social standing. Socrates is fair and uses correct methods of arguments by uncovering the
(Sophocles, Line 455) He clearly shows that women are to surrender to the male figures. Creon does not want a woman who is in control or have any type of leadership role for his sons. As well he clearly explains if he changes his mind about his punishment for Antigone he will no longer be a
In Book V of the Republic, Socrates proposes two arguments that will lead to a more successful and ideal society. Socrates concluded that the two ways to change and further help society, is the recognition of the equality of women and the abolition of the family. Socrates proposes these two ideas hoping that it will better society. Socrates’ proposals help to prove his point of the connection between and ideal society and the natural division of labor. The discussion of equality of women and the abolition of families leads to the discussion between plato and blank about feminism in relations to Socrates’ ideas.
Anthem and harrison bergeron have major differences in their societies, and become a dystopia. You can 't make a society greater by making everyone equal, using people 's differences to their advantage is how people should really live. There is no point in living if you are living with hatred or living in fear. The people should live in happiness but there is also not perfect world on everyone being happy. As Martin Luther King Jr. said… “The time is always right to do whats
Considering how the Piraeus, Athens’ port area, contains individuals hailing from various locations, it would that such a place would be where Socrates encounters different definitions of justice. In Book One of Plato’s The Republic, Socrates challenges Cephalus’ belief that justice is simply being honest and paying back the dues that one owes to the gods and to his fellow men. By providing examples of where it would be unjust to repay one’s debts, Socrates refutes Cephalus’ definition of justice. In these scenarios, paying back those debts would pose a risk of harm to innocent people, which would be unjust since justice does not involve harming others.
Socrates does not make sound arguments because although his premises are logical, they sometimes have nothing to do with the original argument. In Plato’s Euthyphro, the Euthyphro dilemma argument states whether the Gods love the pious because it is pious or it is pious because the Gods love it. In order to support this distinction, Socrates’ first premise in supporting this conclusion is the example of being carried. Socrates claims that there is a difference between something that is already in the state of being carried because it is carried or if something is carried because it is in the state of being carried.
Only her conscience and God will judge her. In the conclusion part called Resolutions, we can find statements about property rights, rights in education and so interesting as the following in the seventh paragraph: “Resolved, that the same amount of virtue, delicacy, and refinement of behavior that is required of woman in the social state also be required of man, and the same transgressions should be visited with equal severity on both man and woman.” This means that men have to be so kind or sensitive as women, since equality has to be from both sides.
Looking at the history of reflection on free will, it can be noticed that such concept was not known in the Ancient Greece. Albeit, Aristotle has shyly discussed about a concept of ‘’choice’’ (proairesis), however it is poorly connected with actual acts, let alone the power of free will. It can be argued that the Greek stoics somehow recognised the possible existence of free will, since they greatly attributed the necessity of defending our inner beliefs and morals, so that the human shall not inherently delve into seeking desires, not worry about them, as well as ignore the circumstances that are not dependant on us. Thus, stoicism attributed to the individual the necessity of being free from all external influences and defending their personal inner sentiments. The development of the concept of free will can be directly attributed and traced back to the late Roman stoicism, especially during the time of Epictetus, whose philosophical teachings and views were written down by one of his students.
The nature that people possesses should not be dictated by the society and their gender, but by their soul that they are borne with. He continues in the Republic and wrote that “if it appears that they differ only in this respect that the female bears and the male begets, we shall say that no proof has yet been produced that the woman differs from the man for our purposes, but we shall continue to think that our guardians and their wives ought to follow the same pursuits” (454e), proving that there is no significant difference between men and women that could exclude women from governing and occupations that used to be male
Socrates presented justice as a way for a better life through the steps that can take someone there. He mentioned the steps as wisdom, courage, and moderation. He stated that these things will lead to justice, however he did not define what justice is. Socrates might have never known himself and wasn’t serious about defining the word. They stat that “after having considered moderation, courage, and prudence, this is what’s left over in the city, justice” (Bloom 111; 433c).
