Papers should be 5-6 pages long, double spaced, times new roman or similar font (standard margins, etc.).

PROMPT: 2. Given the definition of justice that Socrates arrives at in the Republic, is he a just man? Why or why not?
Papers should be 5-6 pages long, double spaced, Times New Roman or similar font (standard margins, etc.). You do not need to consult other resources besides the assigned course texts, and you are in fact strongly discouraged from doing so. If you do use outside sources, you must provide full bibliographic citations for them. But if you only cite from the course texts, you can do so parenthetically, for example: “the philosopher is a desirer of wisdom”(Republic V 475b).

Compare the writings of Matthew Arnold to Sir Philip Sidney, Giovanni Boccaccio, and David Hume.

Again, what is new here in Matthew Arnold, and what preserves some element of the inherited tradition of the writers we’ve read? In the
course of your answer explore terms such as “culture.” “criticism,” and “anarchy” to determine if they are expressed and manifested
(however differently) in the other authors you choose. If so, what does that tell you?

Explain why.

Nature, Nurture, or Both?
Chaffee writes: “Is our evolving intelligence the result of innate strictures or empirical experiences, through ‘nature’ or ‘nurture?’ The prevailing current view is that our evolving intelligence is the product of both innate elements and empirical experiences.” (Chaffee, p. 283)
QUESTION: Do you agree or disagree with this view? Explain why. Discuss a personal experience or experiences which connects with Chaffee’s statement about human intelligence. Also share your thoughts on the picture of the three young girls playing “dress-up” (see page 283).

Excessive writing errors will result in a deduction.

Write a 300-word minimum personal response to the online tour of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C. Your response must have two components: (1) a summary of a few artifacts in light of this week’s course material (including cultures and dates/periods), and (2) a personal reflection on the chosen artifacts and on the museum itself. Please provide links to the artifacts you highlight in your Museum Tour Response. https://www.nga.gov/ Your response is due by Sunday, October 9.

I expect you to present the view in your own words and not just give quote after quote, but it is often good to tie it to the readings and not just to class discussion, in which case you might support what you say with quotes, even if you also will be explaining it in more detail your own words.

TOPIC ON: Plato’s Laches: critical examination of the nature of courage, working
through several definitions and finding them all unsatisfying
The assignment is to present the views of one philosopher or school of thought on one
issue and some evaluation or response of yours to those views and arguments. Identify
the questions the person or people you are looking at are dealing with. Identify what their
views are (i.e. how they answer those questions). Most importantly, present their
arguments or reasoning – how do they get to those answers? What premises, assumptions,
and starting points do they begin with, and how do they make their way in their reasoning
to their conclusions? What is your response to those questions? Enter into the
conversation and offer your own thoughts on these issues.

I am looking for an explanation of the person or group’s view that someone who holds
the view would be able to say is fair to what they actually hold, and I am looking for an
account of how they ended up there. What reasons do they have for holding the view?
What other views led to their conclusions? How do they try to argue for the position?
I also expect your own take on these issues. I want you to show your own thought process
and reasoning. I don’t count just reciting Socrates’ view and arguments and then saying
you agree as your own thoughts. Either find some claims you disagree with or would at
least modify in some way, or take the conversation in some different direction, maybe by
thinking about how these views would apply in a different setting or how the different
kind of world we have now would flesh out the issues in a somewhat different way.
