Select 2 of them and answer it. At least 250 for one question. Use own words.
1. What are Euthyphro’s various attempts to define piety (or holiness) and what are Socrates’ objections to these definitions? Who gets the better of the argument? Why? What definition for piety would you give Socrates?
2. If no satisfactory definition is proposed, what is the use of the entire discussion in this dialogue? How could you claim that the dialogue was still, in a way, a success?
3. What exactly is wrong with Euthyphro’s first definition of piety? Does it satisfy Socrates? What kind of account of piety would satisfy Socrates? Can you give me an example with a different concept?
4. What is The Euthyphro about (what’s the back story, what’s the issue)? Who are the interlocutors? How do they meet?
5. What difference does it make whether the pious is loved by the gods because it is pious, or pious because it is loved? Which does Socrates believe is the right fork to go down? Why? How does one side of the fork amount to an appeal to authority and why is this problematic? Please give examples using your own concepts (eg, “chair,” “love,” etc…)
6. What is elenchus? How does Socrates use it in the Euthyphro? Do you find it useful? Why or why not? Give an example with your reasoning.
