Philosophy – Should Socrates have escaped from prison
Introduction to PhilosophyThe topic of the paper is Should Socrates have escaped from prison?
This should be 3-5 pages long, and you should offer an argument. Your paper will be judged on the argument you give, not on the position you take. This paper can be used as a basis for a longer paper later on. For example, MLK says that Socrates committed civil disobedience. Socrates would probably disagree. What do you think? You could use this first paper as part of a longer paper. You will have my comments on this paper, so that may help you with the longer paper. (Note: there are probably a thousand articles on this topic. Dont read them. At least, dont read them until you have turned in your paper. Actually, I would prefer if you left secondary material alone until you write your own argument based on your reading and understanding.)
