QUESTION

12 pt font Philosophy Plato's Crito single - spaced 2-3 pages

1)  “In Plato’s Crito, the Parent Analogy argument for the authority of the state is weak.” What is the Parent Analogy argument? Why might it be thought weak (e.g. is the state a super-parent?)? Can it be defended? Is there something deep at issue in it? Is that enough to make it a viable justification?

2)  In Plato’s Crito, the Laws of Athens try to convince Socrates that it would not be just for him to flee but rather he must submit to his punishment. They argue: “You, Socrates, [would be] breaking the covenants and agreements which you made with us at your leisure, not in any haste or under any compulsion or deception, but having had seventy years to think of them, during which time you were at liberty to leave the city, if we were not to your mind, or if our covenants appeared to you to be unfair.” (Plato, Crito, pp. 52d-e)
