Aristotle once said that "the man who is incapable of working in common,
or who in his self-sufficiency has no need of others, is no part of the community, like a beast or a god." The conduct of Achilles and Agamemnon in the Illiad validates Aristotle's fears: both them have strikingly different conceptions of the moral obligation appropriate to themselves and remain steadfast in their convictions.
In your paper consider the extent to which Agamemnon and Achilles's moral obligation are truly in conflict. How people who hold such opposing views on morality (and life in general) avoid the kind of tragic conflict portrayed in the epic?
I know I didn't address the question properly. Can you please help?
