1. Discussion 1 post and 2 reply

Hi, welcome to our first weekly discussion!

What is due?

Please choose one prompt (see below) and post at least one reflection and two comments to your peers’ reflections.


This assignment is meant to assess your capacity to understand and reflect autonomously on the contents that you studied, and your capacity to engage with different opinions and views in a respectful and fruitful way, collaborating with your peers for an inclusive learning environment.


Please write:

1) One post on the chosen prompt, 100 to 200 words. Write the prompt number at the beginning.

2) At least two comments on your peers’ posts, 50 to 100 words each. One of the comments can be your reply to a comment you received. Comments can be on any topic, not necessarily the prompt you have chosen.

Please be sure that your posts are on topic, and your comments are respectful and constructive. See the rubric for details (click on the three dots on the top right).

IMPORTANT: This is a group discussion; be sure that you post in your group, not in the general discussion. Only if you post in your group your submission will be graded.


1) Given what you have read of the Apology, why do you think Socrates was accused of corruption of the youth? In what sense “corruption”?

2) In front of an unjust verdict, like in the case of Socrates, is it right to obey the law and accept it, even if it means facing death? If yes, why, and if not, why?

3) Do you think your life is “examined” or “unexamined”? Why? Was there a moment in you life when you started to “examine” it?

4) Explain Socrates’ use of irony by making an example from the Apology. Do you think he accomplishes his purpose?

5) Why do you think it is important being able to distinguish between valid and sound arguments?

6) Share your thoughts on any of the Additional resources and how it relates to the topics of this week.
