Spencer Lane “Pledged” Melian Dialogue Athenian Point #1: For the Melians to hear them (the Athenians) out and settle whichever points they disagree on before disagreeing with everything outright. Melian Counterpoint #1: The military presence the Athenians come to the discussion with leaves no other option than to disagree with them wholeheartedly. Melian Point: If they (the Melians) do submit their future will be slavery Athenian Counterpoint: If the Melians only came to talk about the future they (the Athenians) will leave. Athenian Point: They are attacking the Melians because of acts they have committed directed at the Athenians, and the fact that it is natural for the stronger nation to invade and conquer a weaker nation. Melian counterpoint: That the Athenians should not attack them because it would disregard a common protection of taking advantage of a financial opportunity that was presented to them. Melian point: If the Athenians attack them it could and would lead to their fall.

    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.
