Tutor description

In the Euthyphro, Socrates asks a famous question: Is something pious because the gods love it or do the gods love it because it is pious? What problems do we encounter if we say that something is pious because God loves it? What problems arise if we say that God loves something because it is pious? You do not need to solve this problem; just lay out the dilemma as clearly as possible. This is a short essay question, so you answer should contain more detail and explanation than a short response. To answer this question adequately you will need to write a full paragraph--somewhere between 200 & 400 words. Describe the pear-stealing scene from Book II of the Confessions. What happens in this episode and what lesson does St. Augustine seem to derive from it? This is a short essay question, so you answer should contain more detail and explanation than a short response. To answer this question adequately you will need to write a full paragraph--somewhere between 200 & 400 words.
