Project Description

Write a short essay relating central concepts from Plato’s Republic to contemporary culture.

Essays should first present Plato’s perspective on the issue using adequate textual support. Once this is accomplished, relate and compare his views to those of contemporary culture.

Ultimately, if contemporary culture diverges from the views offered in the Republic students should say which is preferable and why. If a student intends to show that Socrates’ views are inadequate or deficient in some manner, the student must first demonstrate that he or she fully comprehends those views by proving that he or she knows why Socrates says what he says in the context of the book.

Requirements: • Papers must be at minimum 3 full typed double spaced pages in 12 Times New Roman font. Must incorporate textual support from the Republic into the body paragraphs in the form of direct quotations and cite them properly (MLA).

Find adequate examples from contemporary culture that relate to the ideas discussed in the book and document them. (American or International examples are both welcome.) •

In addition to the 3 pages, must submit a separate works-cited page citing all sources (MLA). This is a formal paper, so I strongly suggest that you avoid personal pronouns and have at least one person edit your paper for grammar, spelling, and clarity.

Essays due 6/19 by 11:59 pm.
