106 Which ONE of the following statements about Characters and events in the Hippolytus IS NOT TRUE???

Group of answer choices



Euripides often showed the Gods behaving badly not because he did not believe in the existence of Gods, but because, like Plato and others, he saw humans creating beliefs and stories about the gods which projected their own human evils, not the virtues of the gods.


There is something very morally problematical in killing an innocent person just to make a goddess pay for killing another innocent person.


As he dies, Hippolytus pities his father.


At the end, father and son are reconciled, with represents how Hippolytus joins the community of humanity, even as he is about to leave it.


Theseus comes to understand the true nobility of his son.


The fact that Artemis leaves father and son alone suggests a very humanistic theme, that it is as individuals we must come to terms with each other, face to face, emotion to emotion, in a human, not divine connection.


Euripides often showed the Gods behaving badly because he did not believe in the existence of Gods.

107 Which ONE of the following statements about Aristotle and his Philosophy is not true?

Group of answer choices



The idea of a natural impetus to evolution was an important contribution to the notion of materialism


Aristotle sees institutions, like a plant, evolving to their perfect form and then often dying -- like a living thing.


Aristotle thinks there are humans who, because of their inferior nature, should be ruled by others, just like animals should be ruled by humans.


Aristotle thinks virtue is the middle between extremes of behavior


Aristotle thinks there is a sort of inner drive for a object to reach its final more perfect form.


In his Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle describes the small-souled person as someone a bit too weak, a bit too eager to self-depreciate. The kind of person who "seems to have something bad about him" (probably because he thinks something's bad about him). (This is true)


Aristotle thinks virtue is the middle between extremes of behavior, for example, true courage is between cowardice and rash, unthinking behavior.
