Why Was Socrates Regarded As A Man Of Virtue?

7161 words - 29 pages Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue? Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue? Socrates: Man of Virtue (470-399 B.C.E.) Socrates proposed the theory of value in which there are two sorts of good: virtue and happiness. Both are unconditional goods. But happiness is a "self-generated" good in that it "derives its value strictly from its inherent properties;" whereas virtue is an "other-generated" good in that it derives its value from happiness, precisely from its conduciveness to happiness. Virtue is an instinct in all humanity which can be aroused through self-examination. This universal truth is accessible to everyone who thinks and question. Socrates assumes that any... VIEW DOCUMENT

1. Is The Mystery Man With Twenty-One Faces A Great Criminal? Why Or Why Not

Of course, the others in this ‘personal hell’ may have physically or mentally injured us; but that does not mean that we should, in this, result living in hell, but can rather choose to live in paradise.

Set i lyset af hans fortid som dramatiker giver talen større mening, da det ikke er en traditionel takketale sammenlignet med dem vi for nyligt så ved Oscar-uddelingen, så baggrunden som dramatiker er grundlag for hans skriftlige evner.
