Plato Vs Nietzsche The Nature of Good
Plato Vs Nietzsche The Nature of Good
Plato Vs. Nietzsche: The Nature of Good Plato and Nietzsche have opposing views on the nature of good. Plato, as demonstrated in the The Cave and Apology, believes that Good is absolute. This means that he is of the opinion that there is one perfect version of Good for all people, whether they are rich or poor, powerful or weak. However, Nietzsche believes in the relative nature of good. He thinks that the meaning of good can be different for different groups of people, specifically the upp

Gifts One of the greatest gifts that I ever received was an angel pin from my grandmother. It was the Christmas of 1993 when she gave it to me, twelve months after my aunt had died. To me, the pin represented my aunt watching over me and my family. I have always thought of her as an angel because of her angelic voice. My grandmother died seven months after that Christmas, and then the pin meant even more to me. Now I felt as if I had two angels watching over me. During my ninth grade year, I pu

Greek literature GREEK LITERATURE. The great British philosopher-mathematician Alfred North Whitehead once commented that all philosophy is but a footnote to Plato . A similar point can be made regarding Greek literature as a whole. Over a period of more than ten centuries, the ancient Greeks created a literature of such brilliance that it has rarely been equaled and never surpassed. In poetry, tragedy, comedy, and history, Greek writers created masterpieces that have inspired, influenced, and

Hamlet (Revenge) Revenge. Revenge causes one to act blindly through anger, rather than through reason. It is based on the principle of an eye for an eye, but this principle is not always an intelligent theory to live by. Young Fortinbras, Laertes, and Hamlet were all looking to avenge the deaths of their fathers. They all acted on emotion, and this led to the downfall of two, and the rise to power of one. Since the Heads of the three major families were each murdered, the eldest sons of these f

The first period covers the time after Shakespeare left grammar school until his marriage to Anne Hathaway in November of 1582. The second period covers the seven years of Shakespeare's life in which he must have been perfecting his dramatic skills and collecting sources for the plots of his plays. Wha

As well as some African Americans would debate that World War II was nothing but a white man’s war. I beg to differ in that opinion. In that war, African Americans proved that WWII was more than a white man’s battle; it was a way to demonstrate to the world that African Americans will no longer sit and obey

This scale goes from 1, which is a pretty infantile stage of “I want it and I want it now!”, to stage 6, which is living purely on ethics and principal. A Civil Action is a wonderful movie to see these stages hard at work and just how fast someone can go from one stage to another. I would like to specifically point out three areas in this movie that best show these stages of moral development at

He was a Greek philosopher of Athens and is generally considered as one of the wisest people of all times. He was the son of Sophroniscus, a sculptor, and Phaenarete, a midwife. During the early part of his life, he seems to have followed in his father's footsteps, working as a sculptor. Socrates served in the military but never wanted any important position in the army.

War Laws The term laws of war refers to the rules governing the actual conduct of armed conflict. This idea that there actually exists rules that govern war is a difficult concept to understand. The simple act of war in and of itself seems to be in violation of an almost universal law prohibiting one human being from killing another. But during times of war murder of the enemy is allowed, which leads one to the question, if murder is permissible then what possible laws of war could there b

Introduction During W.W.II over 110,000 Japanese Americans living both in the United States and abroad were uprooted, without due process, and placed in detention camps, or internment camps. These Japanese Americans lost their homes and their business. They were only allowed to take what they could carry and forced into the most inhospitable areas our country had to offer. Our most hallowed judicial court, the US. Supreme Court, stated, in three different cases, that this suspension of due proc

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked the United States Naval facility at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. 19 ships were sunk, 2,335 servicemen lost their lives, and, afterwards, the United States declared war on Japan, and her allies Germany and Italy. However, another great loss occurred on United States soil--the imprisonment of 120,000 people, 2/3 of whom were United States citizens.

In the Gorgias Plato attempts to answer several questions put forth by Gorgias, Polus, and Callicles. Plato’s major argument in the Gorgias is whether it is right to pursue personal pleasure or those things that are virtuous. Plato states that people can not truly be happy unless they have gained their happiness through virtuous or good actions. If I were unjustly accused of a crime, just as Socrates was, I would let the court decide my fate. If I were given the opportunity to hire a lawyer who

Crito has come to Socrates' prison chamber to beg Socrates to accept a plan of escape. Assuring Socrates that no harm would come to him or anyone else involved in the escape, Crito argues that Socrates would actually be doing wrong by not escaping. The argument employed by Crito is four-fold: 1. Socrates is

Since the earliest police departments were formed, society has tried to find a way to “police the police”. Today, this is done through internal affairs or a similar office inside the department and civilian review boards which are independent from the police. Each d
