Gives people education. Therefore, I do not think this quote is correct. 31. “God shouldn't judge us as he is responsible for the way we are”. Your opinion I am neutral to this statement. I think that no one has the right to judge someone. Each person is responsible for his actions, and no one should condemn him, because this is his life. As for God, I think that it was God who gave us this life, but he does not condemn us for our wrong actions. He gives us the strength to understand the mistakes, gives a chance to correct and not repeat the mistakes again. It's my opinion. 32. How valid are the criticisms of Plato in your view? I would agree that there are many flaws in the Platonic theory of forms. Although there were many philosophers defending his theory, I would still argue that weaknesses outweigh these counterarguments, and that this criticism is definitely valid.

Some may try to defend the criticism expressed by Plato himself in Parmenides that the “Theory of Forms” is ambiguous and not sufficiently detailed in such matters as the specification of forms. They may argue that for mundane things, such as bus tickets, Plato was ambiguous about this, since he was primarily interested in metaphysical thinking, rather than concentrating on the material world. They can also defend the absence of an explanation of the forms of evil, because there is no form of evil, there is simply a lack of good. However, I would say that both of them are a very weak defense, since the use of Plato’s ideas and arguments in support of Plato’s theory is extremely unconvincing. In addition, I would say that Aristotle’s analysis of the theory of forms in his work Metaphysics is also very important. This is a very strong argument in the sense that it emphasizes the ambiguity of Plato’s theory and criticizes how unjustified the theory of forms. I would definitely agree more with the empirical views of Aristotle, with the rationalistic views of Plato. However, there are weaknesses in this criticism, for example, the fact that this realm of forms is something metaphysical and needs an element of faith, so that it seems realistic, could relate to theists, as is often claimed

    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.
