Chris Keroack 09-21-05 Philosophy 100 Plato Resume Plato states throughout all of his works that while there are particular things, there also exists a certain state known as a Form. I feel as though he could not be more correct for a multitude of reasons. In his works, Plato praises Socrates for his many notions about Forms in many of his works. Plato also mentions Socrates’ theory on the immortality of the Soul that was also a constant reoccurrence of his works. Goodness could easily be defined as something that is right or noble or something that can make you feel better about yourself. This is where the form of Goodness comes in. What is right or noble can be very different in people’s eyes. I for example believe that college is a good thing. Osama bin Laden thought that destroying the Twin Towers and killing thousands of innocent people was a good thing. Obviously, these are two very different things, but in different peoples and cultures minds different things become good.
