The role of the philosopher in public affairs

For this paper, I would like you to reflect on the role of the “intellectual” or philosopher in public affairs. As we saw in the Euthyphro, the Apology of Socrates, the Crito, and The Republic, Plato urges us to consider how the general public often does not appreciate the value of philosophy. While in Aristophanes’ Clouds, we see a dismissive attitude to the veneration of intellectuals and the importance of the philosophic life.

Where, exactly, do you see a contrast between Plato’s and Aristophanes’ views of the philosophic life?

How do you see the role of intellectuals in public affairs?

What are the implications of your view for democracy? 

While this paper is relatively short (4-7 pages) be sure to show a general understanding of the thinkers and texts we’ve covered in class.

Be sure to get straight to the point in your papers.

Be concise, coherent, and surgical in your approach to answering the prompt.
