Platos The Apology of Socrates

APA (edition "APA 6"), Philosophy
These are my teacher's comment about this essay: Your essay should be approximately 500 words.  This gives you an idea of the length I expect, but I dont count words or pages.  Write the best essay that you can.  Answer all questions in bold.  Please type your essay in MS Word and send it to me by email attachment.  Please dont use any other word processing programs, because I may not be able to open them. This is not a research assignment.  I strongly recommend that you do not search online for help in writing this essay.  Most of what is online is either junk or simply not relevant for us. 1.    How do we know that Euthyphro had failed to examine what piety is?  And why does it matter…

Come up with a way you wronged someone and made up for it according to the views of either Aristotle, Locke, or Boxill (say which one), but NOT according to either Radzik, Bovensor Hieronymi(say which one), and so the victim refuses to forgive you. Say why. What action can you take that overcomes this remaining complaint of theirs, but without using the explicit or implicit performative form of apologies(which the victim never accepts)? Make a convincing argument for why this further action justifies forgiving you, and then an equally convincing argument for why it doesnt. Finally, give a critique of one of those two arguments.(NOTE: an argument makes a convincing case for a conclusion, using reasons designed to move reader who does not yet agree. In contrast, a critique identifies…

Moral

Philosophy, Undergraduate
Moral Inconsistencies After doing a self-examination of your moral thinking, write below a brief comment (150-175 words) about the inconsistencies found in your moral reasoning. For example, you cannot be both a relativist and a proponent of universal moral laws; you cannot be a determinist and also believe in moral responsibility. You don't have to resolve the inconsistencies at this point; merely recognizing them is an important step in the right direction. Do not discuss the same example that I am using here for illustration. Find your own example of an inconsistency in your moral reasoning.Assignment MUST be typed in MS Word, where you can check grammar and spelling. After completing your assignment in MS Word, save it as Moral Inconsistencies, and submit it as a file attachment.Moral Example Based…
