  • Socrates's Tudents And Friends
    542 words
    By viewing the painting The Death of Socrates by Jacques-Louis David, Socrates' loyalty to the Athenian government was far more important to him than his own death or friendship. He was more interested in teaching his students about his belief in reason and the law of justice before he died. Still, the students and friends were arguing with him and trying to convince him to renounce his teachings. Socrates was strong in telling his students how it was for the good of society that he drinks the p...

    2,325 words
    CLOUDSProductionThe setting of the Clouds requires two doors in the scene, one representing Strepsiades's house and the other, the Thinkery, both in the city of Athens.

In his youth he fought as a hoplite at Potidaea (432-429), Delius (424) and Amphipolis (422) during the Peloponnesian Wars. To be sure, his later absorption in philosophy made him neglect his private affairs and he eventually fell to a level of comparative poverty. He was perhaps more in love with the study of philosophy than with his fa...
  • Best Of Intentions
    484 words
    Paul B. Campan o These three works share numerous similarities. The most obvious of these is their character's desire and commitment to instructing and teaching youth. Miss Jean Brodie dedicated a major part of her life to "her girls". She would have done anything to help them. As time went along, she grew too close to them. As we saw, she was eventually betrayed by one of her own girls. She had her heart in the right place. She never did anything maliciously toward the girls. She did not realiz...
  • Friends To Socrates
    407 words
    "Crito, you and other people who claimed to be friends to Socrates are all useless! How could you have been so cowardly, or lazy, or stingy, as to allow you 'friend' to die Surely, with a little courage, energy, and money, you could have saved him". Those are strong accusations coming from someone who obviously did not know Socrates as well as his other students or me. Although, I expected that people would react this way to my actions, or lack of actions, regarding Socrates death. For Socrates,...
