PHIL 1100 - Final Exam Review 1. Explain what reasons Socrates gives in the Crito for not fleeing Athens, even though staying means certain death. Explain why you do, or don’t, find these arguments sound.
2. In the Apology Plato claims that "no evil can happen to a good man”, but in the Crito he suggests that “life is not worth living with a corrupted body”. Explain why one might think that these two views are in tension with each other when you consider, for instance, a good person whose body is corrupted through no fault of their own (say, they are paralyzed by someone who wants to make an example of them). Do you think that there is a way for Plato to resolve this tension? If so, suggest how he could do it. If not, explain why not.
