Name Professor Title Date Anticipatory Perception It is the desire of every individual to be an essential person in society and be able to influence not only the choices but also the actions of the people in the community in a positive way. This group did not exclude either. When I was a child I did not have a specific target in life. But as I gained my steps through puberty and adolescence I realized my ignorance and as I observed and heard my peers I began grasping the fact that there is a future that I must endeavour to achieve. Although I still did not have a specific dream to fulfil I walked in the shadows of my friends’ thoughts and could alternate between being a lawyer doctor teacher and engineer at different occasions when the question arose. Nevertheless this has changed to me. As I grew up I just but a shadowy form that reflects the state of my mind it is a long-term goal that I purpose to attain and make to materialize in the future. However the leadership position of governorship requires traits that cannot be achieved through classroom learning but only through life experiences as confirmed by Socrates in Plato’s work of Meno. I will also execute virtuous and pious deeds that would be just and acceptable to both man and God. Works Cited Ambler Wayne. "Plato’s Euthyphro on Divine and Human Wisdom." Socrates in the Cave.

Having all the readings at your disposal (Allegory of the Cave, Meno, Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Phaedo), construct an image of the self that you are striving to become. As we have seen with Hegel, in order to maintain power, the master has a need to constantly crush the slave’s conscious. The less people take thought seriously, the more they think in conformity with what the master wants. Take this opportunity to piece together a healthy image of the self that you are working to become. Combine the application of the dialectic along with selected concepts and personal anticipations in order to generate an image of self that has the potential to make a difference / mark the world in a real way.
