Textual Exegesis Paper:
The purpose of this assignment is to interpret a central passages of
philosophical texts as a careful reader of them. Explaining difficult material in your own words is a skill of
life. In essence, you must restate in your own words the major points raised in the texts under analysis.
For this reason, I have chosen a first part and a second part. You must type two pages minimum about
the Allegory of the Cave and two pages minimum about on Socrates’s refutation of the 2nd and 3rd
definitions of piety (the pleasing and loving Gods conception of piety) in Socrates’s Dialogue with
Euthyphro in the second part.There’s no maximum, but only a minimum of four pages double-spaced. I
will only accept MS word files in the dropbox, no other file formats will suffice.
