ENG 230 Study Questions for Plato’s Euthyphro Briefly answer all of the following questions: 1. What do Socrates and Euthyphro find they have in common when they meet at the “King’s Porch,” and how do their two situations differ? Both of them are involved in legal issues. Socrates is accused in impiety, while Euthyphro is prosecuting a murder case against his own father. 2. Why is Euthyphro prosecuting his own father? That is, what happened, and what motive does Euthyphro have, according to what he tells Socrates, for bringing his father to court? Euthyphro believes that any type of injustice should be punished. 3. Considering both the way Socrates addresses Euthyphro with such terms as “you wondrous man” and “best of men” and the fact that he repeatedly expresses his wish to become Euthyphro’s student, what do you think is Socrates’ attitude toward Euthyphro? Socrates thinks that Euthyphro is wiser than him, because he know what pious and impious are.
