Please use the following textbook: Plato,
Five Dialogues. Hackett, 2nd ed., 2002. ISBN: 9780872206335
a 750-word paper responding to the topic below.
Euthyphro attempts to justify his
actions by resorting to his religious knowledge and belief. Socrates argues
that such a justification is misguided. At 11e –12d of the Euthyphro, Socrates
gets Euthyphro to agree that piety is a part of justice. Using an evaluation of
the various alternative descriptions of the relationship between justice and
piety, clearly explain why this must be the proper relationship between justice
and piety. (You must discuss the Venn diagrams). Then consider how ONE of the
following passages serves to support the conclusion of the Venn diagrams:
10a-11b (Euthyphro’s Dilemma) or 8c-9a (The Wrongdoer Passage).
Your analysis of Plato should not
provide a summary of the various definitions that Euthyphro gives to define
piety that Socrates invalidates.
