(1.) Know Socrates three arguments against escaping prison (PfP, 3-8;  Plato's Crito; V2) How can one decide what the right thing to do is? Popular opinion is easily swayed and biased The Sanctity of Law- it would be a disaster of the state did not exist therefore we should not do things that destroy the state, it would destroy the state if we did not general obey the law therefore we should in generak obey the law Analogical Argument for Obedience- child relationship to parent as a citizen is to the state, owed state respect like child must obey parent obligation to state is even stronger must except what state says because we are indebted to the state The Social Contract- benefits of citizenship from the state causes obligation to obey law in return, no formal or written agreement Living in state and enjoying benefits is the agreement (2.) Know Aquinas' First Cause Argument (PfP, 21-2; BbR, 2nd way, p. 1;  V5). Every cause has a prior cause therefore nothing is self-caused The chain of causes cant go back indefinitely because then nothing would  have begun If there was no first cause then nothing would exist So there must be a first cause that we call God God is not in the world, he designed the world from scratch and je is not apart of the world he is outside of the universe. He’s a divine programmer creating laws of nature and is separate from the world not in that world (3.) Know Aquinas' argument from Contingency and Necessity (BbR, 3rd  way, p.1; V5) Contingent- something not necessary. Something that exists but might not have He wants to know could it be that everything is contingent?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
