Transcript of Greek Tragedy

Greek Tragedy Socrates Socrates was a very well know philosopher
and he was very known for building his own
school which was called the academy. When he was living he made many powerful philosophies. Socrates died later on but not of a normal death. He had to go to court because he was always questioning (which is known as the Socratic Method) people on the street and always arguing with them. The jury allowed him to get away with it only if he would stop questioning so much but he said no. He said he was still going to question so they sentenced him to death. But he actuallly wanted to die because he believed that he would be better off dead and that it was his time to go. The way he died was by drinking poison from the poisonous hemlock plant. But he was remembered for his very well known philosophies. Socratic Method The Socratic Method is basically about questioning oneself and others. It was used to solve problems. It would first be broken down into a series of questions. The method would question people so that their ideas could be more developed. It was used so that people could determine their beliefs and their knowledge. An example of this method would be, "I think that the president has no idea what he is talking about." A response to that would be, "Are you sure you think that? Is that what you reslly think or? Maybe your mind is messing with you and you dont actually think that." That's a basic example of how the Socratic Method would be used. Socrates would use this method all the time. He would question people, and this got to the point where many people started to get mad. But later on this method become very well known and very talked about. Socrates'
Philosophies Socrates' philosophies were based on three things: Moral, Intellect, and Politics. His philosophy was that everyone was incorrect about what they thought. Here are some of his philosophies. "No one desires evil." What he means when he says that is no one out there wants evil in their lives. Evil is not a wanted thing. Its not something that people desire. Another philosphy of his is, "Virtue is sufficient for happiness." What Socrates basically means here is that as long as you are morally connected, happiness will always be there for someone. Another philosophy of his that is very well known is, "I know that i know nothing noble and good." Socrates is saying that no one is a genius about everything. People might think they know everything but they really don't. He's saying that he doesnt know eveything. And if he did he knows of nothing good and noble. Those are some of his many famous philosophies. Socrates never worked. He never had a job. He devotes himself to his students. Teaching them everything he knows. One of his most well known students was Plato. Plato learned everything he knew from Socrates. But Socrates and Plato had their differences, Socrates had so much trust in democracy and Plato had so much distrust for democracy. Socrates had many morals. If anyone ever thought anything about his morals he would get very angry. Also if anyone had different morals than Socrates then he would question them untill they would change their mind which is known as the Socratic Method. Socrates made the Socratic Method. It was very well known when he was livivng. It is still very well known but people do not use it like they did when Socrates was living. People do tend to forget that this method got him to be sent to the death sentence because it got so many people mad. He just kept questioning people and it got to the point where he had to go to court and go on trial. After people found out what he was on trial for nd what got him sentenced to death, the Socratic Method became even more well known. His belief in philosophies were that his ideas were not his own but they were his teachers. Basically what he is trying to say is that what you know isn't your own knowledge but it was at first your teacher's knowledge that they passed on to you. Antoher one of his beliefs in philosophy is that to ask questions but to never answer. Socrates, while he was living would always do this. He would ask questions but never answer them. His beliefs were always like that. It was his own philosophy, his way of making peace. Work Cited 1. Wikipedia and N.p.
