PHL Tuesday, September 15th, 2009 CONT ʼ D Example: Plato ʼ s dialogue Euthyphro. Asked what a pious action is, Euthyphro replies, “a pious act is what the gods love” Possible objections: 1. Counter example: there ʼ s at least one act the gods love that does not appear to be pious (being loved by the gods does not seen a sufficient condition or piety) 2. Disagreement: the gods seem to love different things at different times (being loved by the gods does not seem to be a necessary condition of piety) 3. Ignorance: we cannot know what the gods love! 4. Conceptual priority: is a pious act pious because the gods love it, or do they love it because it is pious? 5. Independent standard needed, with stated sufficiency and necessary conditions of piety, or confusion will reign Socrates vs Plato? I. Why plato? * Umberto Eco on Thucydides ʼ Peloponnesian Wards -- the athenians invade Melos force - when Piraeus says “do you see how many we are?” persuation seduction - bringing you over by bringing something out of you

What students are saying

    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.
