Phi 208 week 3: euthyphro – plato

  

Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Assignment

 

Euthyphro – Plato
 

In the Euthyphro, Socrates and Euthyphro discuss the concept of piety/holiness. This essay will not only test your ability to recognize and engage philosophical concepts and analysis, but also brings you into the dialogue as a participant, asking you to create your own definition of holiness.
 

Read the Euthyphro, and write a paper in which you do the following:

  1. Explain how the concept of holiness emerges in the      dialogue and why it takes a prominent position in the conversation between      Socrates and Euthyphro. 
  2. Present the three definitions that Euthyphro uses in      his response to Socrates, and then present Socrates’s refutation of each      of Euthyphro’s definitions. 
  3. Develop your own argument as to what you think      Socrates’s goal is in this dialogue. How do you know that is his goal?      What features of the dialogue align with your interpretation of his goal? 
  4. Provide your own definition of piety/holiness and then      create a Socratic response/critique of your definition. After you present      your definition, take on the role of Socrates and respond to your own      definition as you think he would. 

The paper must be at least three pages in length, formatted according to APA style, and include a title and a reference page (which does not count towards the page length). For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
 

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
