1 OUTLINE WITH STUDY QUESTIONS—Plato’s Euthyphro I. Introduction What brings Socrates to the court of the king-archon? HE IS THERE TO BE INDICTED BY MILETUS ON CHARGES OF IMPIETY AND CORRUPTING YOUTH. What brings Euthyphro to the court? HE IS PROSECUTING HIS FATHER FOR MURDER. What reason does Socrates give Euthyphro for wanting to become his pupil? HE THINKS EUTHYPHRO WILL BE ABLE TO TEACH HIM WHAT PIETY IS; TO BE ABLE TO CHARGE HIS FATHER, HE MUST KNOW WHAT PIETY IS. II. Euthyphro's Definitions of Piety 1 ST DEFINITION-- Prosecuting the Wrongdoer According to Socrates, why cannot piety be defined as prosecuting the wrongdoer? SOCRATES DID NOT WANT TO KNOW INSTANCES OF PIETY, BUT RATHER WHAT IS COMMON TO THE CONCEPT---THE FORM. 2 ND DEFINTION--What Is Dear to the Gods PROBLEM—GODS DISAGREE According to Euthyphro, about what kinds of things do the gods disagree? THEY DISAGREE ABOUT THE SAME THINGS THAT MEN DO: WHAT IS GOOD AND BAD, WHAT IS JUST AND UNJUST, WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL AND UGLY, ETC.

    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.
