How Should One Live Their Life?

- This course has sparked in me a fresh curiosity for the intellectual life. It has brought me to ponder great questions that have been part of human history and the human condition. Examples of such questions include, “Does the human soul exist beyond our bodies,” “Does God exist,” “What is knowledge,” “What kind of world do we live in?” But the question from this course that I take to be the most important, as it dictates how we approach questions such as those, and is supremely relevant to everyday life, is “How should one live their life?” This question is possibly the most essential to the human race, since how we answer this question determines our mindset when answering the commonly as...   [tags: Philosophy, Soul, Meaning of life, Plato]

Pushing Through Tough Times: Life is Fine

- When analyzing the poem, “Life is Fine” by Langston Hughes, at first glance it may seem like a short and simple poem about life. The poem is much more complex. The poem is about the obstacles that some people face in life and how to find the strength to persevere. This poem helps the reader appreciate life and encourages us to triumph over the most emotionally challenging obstacles rather than considering death as a solution. The character in the poem, although weak and confused at first, finds the strength to deal with the issues he is struggling with and comes to appreciate life, rather than turning to a tragic way out....   [tags: live life, langston hughes, social value]

Analyzing The Ways One Can Live A Good Life

- In Gorgias, Plato attempts to outline the ways one can live a good life. He begins this by examining oratory. He dispels the presented notions that the life of an orator is more just and good than other professions, such as the life of a philosopher. Plato progressively raises questions that connect oratory to actions that are shameful and undesirable. Oratory came to be defined as a means of attaining one’s personal ambitions. This definition leaves it open to the possibility of pursuing shameful and evil outcomes....   [tags: Philosophy, Plato, Personal life, Rhetoric]

However, if individuals witnessing this dialogue in fifth century Athens were considering this argument simply in terms of how a government should run, they would be missing Socrates’ main point. For Socrates is actually discussing something much more personal to his audience through means of the republic, their soul.
