Minimum 9 pages long. Compose an imaginary dialogue debating a topic (see assigned readings for each issue). Socrates (or Confucius) should perform three functions:
- Clarification of main areas of agreement and disagreement about the issue: i.e., Socrates must identify at least two opposing theses on the issue
- Paraphrase some key arguments offered on both sides for these theses, as Socrates asks questions about them, while he moderates the debate
- Evaluation of what the others say to Socrates about the ethical problems involved with the topic, by having Socrates offer to them a gentle, indirect critique of the best arguments he can find in answer to his questions
You must write ONE Socratic dialogue, on any one of the following topics:
You will be graded according to (1) your understanding of the readings and issues; (2) grammar / clarity / spelling / etc.; (3) the insightfulness of your evaluation of the key themes; (4) how well you follow the instructions on the handout that is given to you with all the necessary instructions for writing a good Socratic dialogue (source: Peter Kreeft, Socratic Logic, edition 3.1, pp. 344-347).
