Order instructions:Based on your reading of the Crito, and the handout that I provided in connection with
it, you think that Mr. Jones and Sam haven’t quite got their history of philosophy right.
Specifically, you think that they have misunderstood Socrates’ position on this matter
(i.e., whether Socrates thought that one has a right to violate any law that one
disagrees with), and that they haven’t understood Socrates’ arguments. Explain, based
on those documents, where and how you think that Sam and Mr. Jones might be going
wrong. In terms of Socrates’ arguments, focus on what I have called “the Core
Argument” and what Socrates argues in terms of the “social contract.” (Do NOT discuss
the argument concerning the duty of gratitude nor the argument concerning obedience
to a superior authority.)
In answering this question, write in ordinary prose (i.e., sentences and paragraphs) as
opposed to using numbered-step arguments. That is, you do have to give the relevant
arguments, but you must express them clearly in ordinary prose.
