Respond in writing to the following prompts – use paragraph format:
1. Compare and contrast Crito’s argument that would be unjust for Socrates to stay in prison–since that is what his enemies want–with Socrates’ argument that it would be unjust for him to leave–since he would be destroying the laws.
2. Is there a common ground between the two or are they irreconcilable?
3. What moral assumptions does each argument carry with it?
