Socrates said to his jurors, “Are you not ashamed that, while you take care to acquire as much wealth as possible, with honor and glory as well, yet you take no care or thought for understanding truth, or for the best possible state of your soul?”  Do you agree with this attitude?   Why or why not?
  2. Choose one of your fundamental beliefs that you have not thought much about and write an argument defending it or rejecting it.  Be careful not to use any logical fallacies.
