Different Definitions of the Word "Pious" Depicted in Plato's Socratic Dialog Euthyphro

- Plato's Socratic dialog Euthyphro is in many ways archetypal of the sort of philosophy that Socrates is thought to have been interested in. In it (as in most classic 'Socratic dialogs'), Socrates seeks out a person who claims to have a certain sort of knowledge. He then proceeds to show that these experts do not possess this knowledge by getting them to contradict themselves. With this in mind, I will discuss the three definitions of the word 'pious' that the character Euthyphro gives to Socrates, and Socrates' problems with each of these definitions....   [tags: Euthyphro]

War as a Form of a Dialog between Cultures

- If we are talking about dialogue, the first thing that comes into our mind is verbal, oral dialogue. And a good example of this in contemporary cultural context is translation. However, this is fairly new form of communication and the three much earlier and older ones are: war, love and trade. At first sight they seem to be rather different, but in fact they have a lot of common features and in real life are closely linked together. A good illustration for this is marriage, which clearly belongs to the love-discourse....   [tags: World Cultures]

The Dialogs Of Socrates By Socrates

- When reading the dialogs of Socrates, it is easy to ready each as an individual story. It is more difficult to take into consideration every word that Socrates has said up to that point and allow that to influence the validity of Socrates current position or argument. Though this may be more difficult we must take everything that Socrates has claimed to hold in every dialog. While doing this brings up a potential contradiction between Socrates Apology and in his dialog with Crito. Though this contradiction is clearly visible when focusing on just the idea of these claims, there is background beliefs of the Gods that allows both Socrates claim in his apology and his argument in the Crito dial...   [tags: Plato, Socrates, Philosophy, Ethics]

All of these tropes function using masculinity as a way to determine who fights best or at all in some cases.

Rhetorical Analysis Of Homer 's The Iliad, The Mortal And Semi Mortal Men

- Men fighting at war are a common depiction of how battles are fought in most cultures. As with Homer’s The Iliad, the mortal and semi-mortal men are combat rated based on their personification of masculinity. Homer sets this up through various literary tropes which range from the characterization of heroes or major figures in the poem, rousing speeches, and analogies. All of these tropes function using masculinity as a way to determine who fights best or at all in some cases. Homer’s gendered narrative aids in the development of masculinity being the deciphering tool which designates shame and glory in the midst of warfare....   [tags: Iliad, Trojan War, Achilles, Man]

The Taming of the Shrew and Romeo and Juliet

- While The Taming of The Shrew played in theaters in the spring of 1967, the Summer of Love was about to explode in San Francisco and London, signifying the height of the hippie, counter-culture movement.
