Carl Crittenden Editor: Mark Rodgers Date of 1 st Draft: November 30, 2007 Date of Final Draft: December 7, 2007 MWF: 11:00am Consolation of Philosophy Book II Towards the end of the Book II in the Consolation of Philosophy, Philosophy says “you will notice that good fortune is proud, insecure, ignorant of her true nature; but bad fortune is sober, self-possessed, and prudent through the experience of adversity.”(page 34) and “good fortune seduces the weak men away from the true good through flattery; but misfortune often turns them around and forcibly leads them back to the true good.”(page 34). Philosophy argues that misfortune is more beneficial than good fortune to a person. With that said, I agree with Philosophy that misfortune is more beneficial to a person and I will use this paper to argue that misfortune teaches life lessons while good fortune brings more desires. An argument against Philosophy’s beliefs is that people need a little bit of good fortune then all misfortune.

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.
