Review the article "What is a philosopher?" from the New York Times by the contemporary philosopher
Simon Blackwell. Based on this reading and the others, how and why does the philosopher differ from the lawyer in the philosophical writing of Plato? Do you agree with the distinction? What makes them so different and which one can you relate to the best.
This is my discussion question of PHIL300. I just need brief answer to the question above.
