Students need only use materials outlined in class without the aid of any additional research. 1. In Hesiod’s Theogony, the gods can represent many different things. Describe some of the things that the gods can represent, and give at least three examples from the text to support your claim. 2. In Hesiod’s Theogony, it becomes difficult to determine when the gods are to be understood literally and when they are to be understood metaphorically. Describe some of the potential difficulties that can occur when taking a purely literal interpretation of Theogony, and give at least three examples from the text to support your claim. 3. In Hesiod’s Theogony, the tension that arises within the family context can often have tragic implications. Discuss some of the implications of this tension, and be sure to give examples from the text to support your claim. 4. In Parmenides On Nature, the nature of being and non-being is discussed within the context of change. Give a description of how Parmenides understands the “Is” in relationship to change, and what are some of the difficulties that can arise when taken into consideration the nature of human perception. 5. In Parmenides On Nature, Parmenides discusses the relationship between the “Is” and thought. Give an account of this relationship, and be sure to include a discussion of how the “Is” is understood in the context of time versus that of thought and human perception. 6. Discuss one or several definitions of piety depicted in Plato’s Euthyphro. Be sure to include the major discrepancies inherent in the proposed definition of discussion, as well as how the problems of the previous definition (if applicable) resulted in the formation of the proposed definition. Also be sure to discuss how the discrepancies of the proposed definition result in a new definition of piety (if applicable). 7. Discuss one or several definitions of Justice in Book I of the Republic of Plato. Be sure to show how the major discrepancies of previous circumstances or definitions caused the formation of the proposed definition (if applicable), as well as how the discrepancies of the proposed definition lead into the formation of a new definition (if applicable). 8. In Book I of the Republic, Cephalus indicates that he is happy to be free of the passions that younger people are often afflicted with (such as sexual desire), yet seems to be concerned with making the proper sacrifices to the gods. What does this indicate about the nature of the human being in relationship to aging, and how does this inform Cephalus’ definition of Justice? Be sure to include a description of Cephalus’ understanding of Justice as well as its flaws. 9. Discuss the myth of the Ring of Gyges in Book II of the Republic of Plato, as well as why the myth compels Socrates to begin construction of a “City in Speech.” Also be sure to discuss the desire that the other interlocutors have for Socrates to defend his position. 10. In Book II of the Republic, Socrates gives a depiction of the origin of a city in order to observe Justice in the individual. Give a description of Socrates’ take on the origin of the Just city. Be sure to include a description of what compels the origin of a city, what causes the city to expand, and why the city’s expansion compels the need for a guardian class. What does the nature of the origin of a city and its expansion indicate about human nature in relationship to desire? 11. In Book IV of the Republic, Aristodemus is skeptical that the guardians would be motivated to uphold their position in society given the nature of their circumstance. Describe the circumstance of the guardians in the context of the city in speech. Be sure to include what their lifestyle would consist of, why the initial reaction to such circumstances would deter most people, and why such circumstances could be seen as more advantageous upon further inspection. Why would the average human being find the circumstance of the guardian difficult despite its potential advantages? 12. In Book IV of the Republic, it is indicated that the City in Speech avoids many of the things that lead to division in the context of other types of societies. Compare the city in speech to our own society. Be sure to give a description of the differences concerning rulers, money, societal norms, and laws. What are the things present in our current society that would lead to division that the City in Speech avoids, and why would we have difficulties giving up those things despite the potential advantages in letting them go? 13. In Book IV of the Republic, Socrates indicates the classes in which each of the four cardinal virtues are located. Describe where each of the four cardinal virtues are located in the City in Speech and why. Be sure to include in your description how Socrates understands that Justice compels the other three virtues. 14. In Book VII, Plato discusses the allegory of the cave. Describe the allegory of the cave. Be sure to include in your description the difficulties in coming out of the cave, the difficulties in going back into the cave, why others would have a mistaken apprehension with regards to the individual returning to the cave, and what these elements are analogous to.
