General TopicIn your post, draw on one of the following readings: Russell’s 1) “Value of Philosophy,” Plato’s 2) Euthyphro, 3) Apology, or 4) Crito. The general topic of the discussion post is the ethical importance of knowledge. I have provided a prompt below, but you may create your own alternative question.If you create an alternative question, be sure to present your question in your post and explain how it relates to one of the above readings. If you use the prompt, you do not need to answer all of the questions below. In fact, it’s a good idea to focus on one or maybe two of the questions.Only write on one philosopher for your discussion post.Writing Prompt: The Ethical Importance of KnowledgeCan you think of an important example in which knowledge made you a morally better person? Has knowledge ever made you a morally worse person?What does Russell mean when he says that acquiring knowledge involves an “enlargement of self”? Do you agree with Russell? How does Socrates understand wisdom? What ethical importance does this understanding of wisdom have?Assignment RequirementsSee the Discussion Post Guidelines for general info on the assignment and example posts: Discussion Post Info & Example.docx The most important requirements are:write at least a 300 word original post,quote and cite from one of the above course readings (in your original post),use paragraphs in your original post,write at least a 200 word response post.Also Worth Noting You must post before seeing other people’s posts. As a result, you will not be able to edit any posts. (This ensures that you do not submit an empty or extremely short post in order to then copy other people’s work.)If you see something you would like to change or add to your original post, then submit a second post. This will not penalize you, so long as your original post fulfilled the basic assignment requirements. If you submit an empty or extremely short post, then you will be penalized.It’s a good idea to first type your post in a word or google document to prevent accidental submissions.
