What do you think Socrates would have to say about the vision of religious ethics in the Book of Deuteronomy? In what ways did Greek philosophy and ancient Jewish monotheism seem to have approached religious ethics differently?" Make sure especially to reference the famous Euthyphro Dilemma: "Is the pious loved by the gods because it is pious, or is it pious because it is loved by the gods?”

the paper should be in an essay form with a clear thesis!

You should make sure to refer to or quote specific examples from the documents in order to support your arguments, and to cite them using Chicago-format footnotes.
