St. John’s University Dr. Trent H. Hamann Philosophy of the Human Person Fall 2007 MIDTERM STUDY GUIDE 1. Explain the method and purposes of ‘dialectics’ as practiced by Socrates. 2. What value or purpose does dialectics have, even if it can’t reveal the truth (because perhaps ‘God only knows’)? 3. Assuming that Euthyphro’s actions are indeed pious, why does Socrates reject his claim that “piety is what I am doing now”? 4. If both Socrates and Euthyphro are ignorant of the true meaning of ‘piety’ what is it that distinguishes them? 5. What are the similarities between Euthyphro’s father and Socrates on the one hand and Euthyphro and Miletus on the other? 6. According to Socrates, what kinds of things do people generally tend to argue over? How does this point relate to the gods? 7. When Socrates begins his discussion with Euthyphro he has at least two goals. What are they? Does he succeed in achieving them? What might Plato’s goals have been for the readers of Euthyphro ?

    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.
