Project #28327 - final paper

Choose two topics on Plato and one on Nietzsche or  two topics from Plato's different dialogues. Use textual evidences from the books we have read for class and offer a few examples from your own experience to support or refute Plato’s and Nietzsche’s arguments.

Each answer should be approximately one and a half pages long. The three answers should be approximately 4-5 pages in length, typed,  double-spaced, 12 Times New Roman font, standard margins.

Plato

1)    Socrates argues in the Apolgoy that there is no reason to be afraid of death? Explain Socrates’ argument. Do you agree or disagree with his argument? Offer reasons to support your position.

2)    What does success mean for you? Do you want to succeed in life? What does it mean to have a good life according to Socrates? Do you agree with Socrates?

3)    What is Diotima’s understanding of Love, and how does her understanding correspond with the views of the other speakers at the symposium?

4)    Why does Socrates have to explain to Glaucon ‘What is Good’? How does Socrates define the Good? How do you distinguish between good and bad in your everyday life?

5)    Why do “the prisoners” in Plato’s cave prefer to remain prisoners even after they are released from their bonds? Is it possible to liberate “the prisoners”? Illustrate your interpretation with a few examples from your own life.

Nietzsche

1)    How does ‘reason’ in philosophy effect anti-natural morality? Are the moral norms that you follow natural or anti-natural?

2)    What is Socrates’ problem according to Nietzsche? Why does Nietzsche discuss Socrates’ face? What kind of clown is Socrates according to Nietzsche? What is Socrates’ mission according to Nietzsche? Why does Nietzsche think that the medicine offered by Socrates is more dangerous than the sickness?
