Question description

3 pg, 12 font double spaced paper, needed by 4 hours 

For these prompts, be sure you explain FIRST what Socrates means by justice:

1. Pick one of Socrates’ myths or stories (e.g. the myth of the metals, the Allegory of the Cave) or his laws (e.g. that children should be held in common, that philosophers should rule).  How does it contribute to the justice of the city?  How could Socrates have changed the story or law in order to create more justice?

My preferences: allegory of the cave (story) OR That Philosophers should rule (law)  
Nuts and Bolts:
• Your essay should be 3 pages in length, double-spaced, 12pt Times New Roman font, with standard margins.
• Clearly display which question you are answering on the title page of your paper. 

-Outline your answer before you begin writing.  If you don’t know how you’re going to answer the question, don’t start writing yet.

-Don’t make large, windy introductory statements (eg. “the question of democracy has been debated for millennia”).  Start by immediately and clearly asserting your thesis. 

-Your paper should start with a thesis and then lead me through your reasoning in a clear, logical manner so as to convince me that you’re right.

-Structure your paper according to the outline you’ve written.  One good way to structure your paper is to think of two or three reasons why you’re right and then devote one paragraph to each reason.

-Be sure you cite from the text in order to support your points, and be sure that you explain the quotations you pull from the text.

-A great paper will conclude not by summarizing the paper, but by indicating the wider significance of the claim you’re defending.

➢ I am mainly looking for a clear, well-argued paper that closely analyzes and assesses the text.  If you find yourself straying from the text and/or not citing the text at all, delete the paragraph and start over.

Based on the book "The Republic" by Plato
