Explain his argument, and criticize where appropriate.

Critique

In the dialouge “Crito” , begining on page 106, Socrates argues that he should not escape from prison. pull out the main argument he give in this selection, section 49a, pg. 109, through section 52d, pg. 111.

Explain his argument, and criticize where appropriate.

Try to clarify his argument down to a series of simple statements (like we did for Socrates argument in the apology) then explain more fully what means and implies. Your criticism should most likely consist of a counter-example to one of the premises of his argument. Show how it fits the principle he proposes. but doesn’t give the answer he thinks it does. For example if you claimed that a chair is a thing with four legs, then both a rocking chair and a zebra would be counter-examples: the rocking chair because it is a chair but doesn’t have four legs, the zebra because it has four legs but isn’t a chair. Approximately 12 of your paper should be spent setting out his argument and explaining it, the remaining part offering criticism and counter-examples.
