Question

Respond to one of the questions prompts below with a paper at least three pages, double-spaced. The claims made in your paper should be supported through careful engagement with the text. I welcome you to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like any assistance.

The Euthyphro can be examined from both the search for definitions, and the struggle between two forms of life; the philosophical and the sophistical/pious. Why do you think, bearing these two aspects of the text in mind, that the text has an inconclusive ending? There are several issues that you will want to bear in mind: 1.) How do Socrates and Euthyphro represent different forms of living? Is Socrates’ questioning fair? Does Euthyphro’s inability to adequately respond to Socrates reflect the weaknesses of the sophistical/pious life?

Is it ever just to violate the laws of the community? If so, in what circumstances would it be just to break the law? Or, do you agree with Socrates when he says that we should bring about change in the laws through persuading the community and leadership or obey them? Clearly state your position in this debate with reference to either or both of our readings from the Crito and the “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”
