(145) Hagar’s story and the spirit mounting Mary. Short essay questions: I will select 3 from among the following essays. Essays should be two paragraphs
of approximately 5-7 sentences each: Compare and contrast Plato’s and Aristotle’s understanding of metaphysics and how those respective understandings inform their ethics. o Plato and Aristotle have different approaches to metaphysics. Plato is of the mind that things exist in one of two forms, a perfect universal form, or imperfect particular form. The perfect universal form exists in a world that transcends what we think to be our reality. Our reality is filled with things that are just shadows of their true form. Aristotle also believes that things exist in two forms; matter is potentiality, and form is actuality. All universal forms exist within particular forms. o Plato argues that the soul is composed of three parts: wisdom, passion, and sensuous. These parts translate in to people who are either guided by their knowledge, their courage, or their greed. Plato discusses that those who are guided by wisdom will be fulfilled in life, because they will transcend and see the truth, and those who are guided by greed and gluttony will move at random through life. Aristotle believes that virtues are states created by habituation. They are a mean; doing the right things, at the right time, to the right people. Compare and contrast the different understandings of what role and significance Jesus and the kingdom of God have for Christian Ethics. Be sure to explain the main differences between a normative and illustrative interpretation of each. o Jesus exemplified values in his life and teachings, and that is agreed upon in Christian theology. However, to what extent we should follow Jesus, and how to get in to the kingdom, has two different approaches. One such approach is the normative interpretation. This upholds that Jesus was the single person who defined what values were in his life. They did not exist before Jesus carried them out. As such, in order to enter the kingdom of God, we must follow Jesus’ teachings exactly.
