Jewell 1 Jewell Mark Professor Hairr PHI215-002 10 November 2019 “Socrates: Nobody can truly harm a good man or person” If someone has the right attitude and keeps the right mindset throughout the entirety of their existence, then the very idea of harm, means nothing. Virtue enraged in its fullest is something that Socrates himself constantly pursued. Socrates’ idea of Virtue was influencing the young through intellectual common sense. It’s what made him feel alive. Though his ideas were sometimes unorthodox, Socrates always had the perfect explanation for his ideas. There were many topics that I could have chosen to type about for this class but the topic of being a good man truly inspired my curiosity. Many people doubted Socrates, however, unlike many I am immensely intrigued by Socrates ideas and theories. Renowned politicians and theorists currently use some of Socrates’ ideas to this day. For example, during the final stages of Socrates’ trial, he spoke relating to his accusers saying, “They thought they were doing me some harm”. He says that the accusers “thought” they were doing some harm because they were truly not harming a good man. Socrates’ never meant any harm through his actions. Having one of the most legendary trials of all time is exactly what Socrates’ intended on doing. This good man could never truly be harmed

    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.
