Socrates has played an essential role in reconciling both faith and reason as seen in the Plato’s text “Crito” is a discussion by Socrates and Crito about Socrates jail sentence. Crito tries to convince him to escape before the trial because of the fear of death. However, Socrates does not agree with his suggestions and faces the trial. Crito tries to reason with him, but Socrates refuse because he believed that faith and reason were not important like following the law. This shows that Socrates has faith in the law and respects it is a reasonable source. Since faith and reason can be verified through humans, Socrates uses the questions to review those themes whilst trusting in the law using reason. Socrates alludes that both wisdom and knowledge can be reflected in practical action. In response to Crito’s planned escape, Socrates debunks his ideas by asking him to consider what he really believes rather than opting to do what the majority would even if it were wrong (Crito 30).

    The presence of a sort of tension between faith and reason has been innate to humans since people first started to question what the true purpose of life is. The existence of this separation could be clearly viewed by looking comparing Athens and Jerusalem, with Athens representing truth through reason and philosophy and Jerusalem representing truth through insights of revelation and purity of soul. Therefore, faith and reason have always posed tension by their proximity and their constantly…

    Reason is not necessarily the means to the better life, or towards procuring ‘the good,’ from the view of these latter thinkers. It seems that Nietzsche would problematize the allegory of the den, in this respect, to no end. From a Nietzschean perspective, the relativity of our values, and the ways they merely reflect the power dynamics and social and political undercurrents of our age, begs the question of their effect on our reason (Nietzsche, 1989, p.46-47). The supposed ‘good’ or ‘moral…

    line of the Kant’s conception of rationality. The core of this conception is whatever we do is from and for a reason. Wood formulates this as follows: It ought to be utterly uncontroversial that whatever we do, we should act for reasons, and therefore from a reason. It is a virtual tautology to say that what we should do is the same as whatever there are the best (or at least good enough) reasons to do, and that we should do it for (or from) those reasons.

    “Medea explores the tension between reason and passion”. Discuss It is within the very nature of humans to isolate the polarised forces of reason and passion, yet within his Greek tragedy Medea, Euripides demonstrates the “fatal results” of possessing a predisposition for either frame of mind. Indeed, the antagonistic relationship between Medea and society best contextualises the gripping antithesis between maintaining an acceptable outward demeanour and laying bare our inner impulses…
