Hi, need to submit a 1250 words essay on the topic Multi-topic covering early and late greek legacy 1000+ words.
He was certainly of noble birth being the son of King Atreus and Queen Aerope. He was a hero because he led the Greek armies against Troy and was victorious. However, for him to achieve this, he committed the error of sacrificing his daughter Iphigenia to be able to sail to Troy. This was to be the reason for his horrific murder by his wife, Clytemnestra. In spite of gaining honour for Greece, Agamemnon suffered not only from his wife’s infidelity and wrath but also from the loss of loyalty of his people because he was not told of his wife’s treachery.
Philoctetes is not much of a tragic hero because his story ended not in his demise but in victory and honour. Philoctetes was of the nobility because he was the son of King Poeas of Meliboea in Thessaly. His error in judgment was his loyalty to Heracles but this is not the type of error that would make the audience feel a dramatic irony. His misfortune was being injured and being exiled to an island by the Greeks due to the complications of his injury. Again, this does not evoke any ironic feelings.
Pentheus certainly suffered a tragic faith being torn limb from limb by his mother and aunt. He was certainly of the nobility because he was King of Thebes and committed a flaw in judgment when he banned the worship of Dionysius. However, Pentheus lacks the heroic deeds that Agamemnon and Philoctetes achieved. In this sense, his story was only tragic but he was not much of a hero. (Hamilton, 1998)
Philosophical thinking was not confined to Europe alone as nations such as China boasts of scholars who had influential views on matters pertaining to life and value systems. Two such scholars are Confucius and Lao Tzu. The beliefs and value of these two giants in Chinese philosophy became the guiding principles of Confucianism and Taoism. Our concern now is to determine who of these two will Socrates share more similarities.
Taoism believes that one’s chief task is to seek the Three Jewels
