I need help writing a paper. It has to be at least six pages and this is the topic my teacher gave us:
Recently in class we discussed Plato’s two works, the Apology and Crito. In these works we find Socrates reflecting on the need to improve one’s soul. More precisely, we find him reflecting on the need to tend to virtues of character. This concern with the well being of the soul is pursued in tandem with the need to protect the well being of the city. This is a concern which also haunts Plato. However, in his 'Republic', which we have also discussed at length, it seems that there is a sustained focus on the means by which the soul can be modified by the city. This focus, in combination with the demands of Plato's notion of justice, produces a work that seems to warrant a much more invasive form of political life. Plato's Republic seeks to make the individual soul right in order to secure the fate of the collectivity. In your paper, consider these assertions as you compare and contrast Socrates and Plato on the relationship between the ethics of looking after yourself for your own sake as well as for the sake of the city. In addressing this topic you should consider the following questions: What are the dilemmas of moral/political life these two authors identify? What is the “ethic” that each suggests for a would-be political actor? What are the differences between Socratic and Platonic virtue?
Please help asap it's due Tues. by 8am
