He has some saving graces. He is a principled individual and in this regard is prepared to perform what he accepts to be his obligation to the gods — despite the fact that it includes bringing charges against his own particular father. It creates the impression that what Euthyphro's dad has done under the current conditions was reasonable under Athenian law, and it was very improbable that he would be rebuffed. By and by, Euthyphro trusts it is his religious obligation to report what his dad has done, which is his fundamental explanation behind doing it. Having satisfied his obligation as to the occasion, his still, small voice will find a sense of contentment.
He used logos in “Father, gods instill good sense in men,” this says that all people have some sort of logics or reasoning for their actions and that what Antigone did was not wrong. He uses this to make Creon realize Haimon’s opinion and side of the situation. Haimon is wise for his age and shows his father Creon, that he can have his father change his mind and plan for Antigones death. Haimon’s speech to his father had an impact on the way things turned out because of the logos technique displayed by him. Another logos method is when he lets his father know that “This is no city which belongs to one man.” It’s true because the city may get upset if Creon tries to make all decisions without discussing it with others.
Everything that he talks about is always framed in a way that makes him seem more honest then he might’ve actually been. For example, everyone has been taught that political figures like JFK and Lincoln were men who did things for the greater good. Vidal comes in with the truth and claims that such beliefs are a lie. Although he comes off harsh because his diction and the truths he gives his viewers, he is framed in a way that makes his honesty something that feels like a necessity for him to tell his viewers. That what he’s saying is a truth that he wants people to know.
Thrasymachus benefits from his own definition of justice, an opinion really, in that it allows Thrasymachus to see only part of the truth and go through his life with an unchanging view. It is in any person’s best interest to pursue an opinion that reinforces their own beliefs or validates choices that are beneficial to that individual. Since he can always point to commonly accepted examples of justice and injustice Thrasymachus can base his argument off of those examples and there will be few who can disagree with him. This opinion of justice ends up being to the advantage of Thrasymachus. He can use his opinion either to commit injustice, as it is the better option in his mind, or to discredit those commonly thought to be just by calling
Jones supports Atticus’s honest nature by saying that, “Reflection gives us humility, forces us to confront our own frailties and limitations; and compassion helps us love…”(Jones 152-153). In this situation Atticus has to confront his lawyer and father side; however, his decision tells readers that he still cares about Jem through his honest nature. Ultimately, Atticus would rather tell the truth and put his son on trial rather than let lies fester and develop into rumors in the small town of Maycomb because it is the right decision to
Atticus was a great man. He was kind, caring, respectful, well thought of, level headed, and anything and everything that a good lawyer and father should be. He is one too just wants what 's right, which is why he did his best to defend Tom, when the case shouldn 't have been given to him but a low man who just finished the bar Judge taylor gave him the case because he knew he would give it his all to bring out the truth. He also sees everyone as equals and does not believe that the whites are any better than the blacks. Attics makes points toward the jury that in any other place or time would have been ruled in Toms being not guilty but because of the segregation in the deep south of maycomb the jury had their mind made up before tom even
However, even though Brutus already trusts Cassius, Cassius knows that he needs to get Brutus to trust not only his character, but also trust his judgments of the importance of Brutus being a co conspirator. He does this by telling Brutus that he should trust Cassius and his judgements because he can see Brutus better than he sees himself, for “you have no such mirrors as will turn your hidden worthiness into your eye” (1,2,56) and further emphasizes his point by asserting “well as by reflection, I, your glass,/ will modestly discover to yourself” (1,2,68-69). Cassius also appeals to Brutus’s ethos by emphasizing the fact that if Brutus were to not trust Cassius, he should “then hold me dangerous” (1,2,78) as a way to make Brutus feel more secure in trusting Cassius. These examples show how Cassius combines Brutus’s trust for Cassius’s character with reasoning to convince Brutus to trust his opinion regarding Brutus, in order to cement the idea that Brutus is a chose one to save Rome. Moreover, Cassius gives Brutus the option ignore Cassius as a way to provide Brutus security in placing his trust in Cassius’s
This honest creature doubtless /Sees and knows more, much more, than he unfolds.”(3.3.248-249). I interpret this to mean that he believes Iago holds the truth to Desdemona’s faithfulness, and his word is law. It is troubling to me that Othello would trust this man so quickly and forget his vows this easily.
Although his order may seem inhumane, but his intention is good. He wanted greater good for his people and thus he has no other way but to contain the spread of this virus by killing. Hence, I believed that men are fundamentally good. This is supported by Plato and Aristotle that considered men are good because they are born rational. Jean-Jacques Rousseau agreed with Aristotle that men are able to distinguish what is right and what is wrong.
He maintains that the ruler 's primary goal should be conquering, staying in control of the general public and to always have the idea of war in mind. His ideas seemed utterly straightforward as he used simple logic, thus i liked his view points, even though i had a few disagreements with his ideas of solutions to some problems. Some of his central opinions based around the idea that its better to be feared than to be loved by people. to not be unbiased and to disregard flattery. In one of his chapters, it was explicitly stated by machiavelli that being feared by people is more secure then being adored by the.
