Outline the argument Socrates gives in the Crito in defense of his decision to stay and accept punishment.


The prompt i have chosen is this one: Outline the argument Socrates gives in the Crito in defense of his decision to stay and accept punishment. In what way would he be harming himself and others if he fled? Would Augustine agree with Socrates’ decision and his reasons for making it? Explain in detail why or why not. Be sure to include a discussion of Augustine’s distinction between temporal laws, eternal law, and so-called unjust “laws.” Also include a discussion of Augustine’s account of a life of virtue (a life lived with prudence, fortitude, temperance and justice) in pursuit of wisdom. How does Augustine define these virtues? Does Socrates’ decision to stay reflect these virtues? Why or why not?here the format: -3–5 pages long (12-point font, 1-inch margins, double-spaced) -You are not required to use secondary sources, but you are welcome to. Use proper citations. -Include a bibliography and proper citations. Use Stephanus numbers to cite Plato; use page numbers to cite Augustine. -Writing philosophy resource: http://www.jimpryor.net/teaching/guidelines/writing.html (Links to an external site.) this format was given to me by the professor and i would like to specify that i do not want to use other sources except the readings we have been following. the two books needed to write this paper are: Plato: Five Dialogues: Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Meno, Phaedo (Hackett Classics by Plato (Author), John M. Cooper (Editor), G. M. A. Grube (Translator) and On Free Choice of the Will by Saint Augustine (Author), Anna S. Benjamin (Translator), L. H. Hackstaff (Translator) I will copy and paste here a link to a guideline on how to write a philosophy paper that my professor gave to me. If possible, i would like you to follow as reference. –> http://www.jimpryor.net/teaching/guidelines/writing.html#Grammar I would also like to mention the fact that i am an international student so my vocabulary skill isn’t great additionally our professor made it clear to write as simply as possible and i know that the way i write is very simple and straight forward. moreover i also have a learning difficulty such as dyslexia so if you could keep it simple to some extent it would be great. the professor is aware of my learning disability since i gave her my documentation. lastly i would like to mention that this is my first ever philosophy class so i am sort of new to the subject.let me know if you need any other information. also philosophy isn’t my major but in liberals classes such as this one i am an average student thanks and sorry for the late notice
