2. Topic: Socrates, corrupted youth, and modern perspectives.
What does the significance seem to be of the emphasis on “youth” in the Apology, and explain what Socrates did that seems to have affected, or corrupted them. Ultimately, what is the value of Socrates’ effect on the youth?
This paper will raise a lot of the same questions as those above. Please read and apply those same questions here. This paper should, like the above topic, closely analyze the ‘gadfly’ passage at 30e-31a, but might also address such passages as those from 20a – d, where Socrates is sarcastic about the “moderate” fee of education, or 39d, where he prophesies that the new generation of activists or gadflies will be “younger” and harder to bear, i.e., more forceful. Your paper must also address, in any place that makes sense to the logic of your paper as (in which the content follows from a coherent thesis), the work of climate activist Greta Thunberg. How does Thunberg’s speech resonate with Socrates’ method, where he puts others on trial? (For an example, see 24d, where Socrates begins “Come, Meletus…”). In what way is Thunberg a gadfly? Is she “corrupted” in the sense of Plato’s Apology? What is her accusation against adults, and would you agree that they are guilty?
