What is Wisdom?
In a 3-4 page essay, address/discuss the following:
- Define “dialectic” and discuss how Socratic dialogue differs from other conversations.
- Illustrate your understanding with examples of some specific beliefs one might examine via the Socratic Method.
- Explain the difference between knowledge and opinion for Socrates as illustrated in the Meno and the Republic.
- Explore your own response to the question of whether human beings can ever know the truth for certain. Can we ever achieve perfect wisdom about the kinds of ideas philosophers explore? Why or why not?
