Many have claimed that everyone would act the same way as Gyges; some have claimed that there can be formulated theories to explain what morality is, why it is important, and why it has the peculiar hold on us that it does. Do you agree with this premise? Why or why not?

Read the attached and Answer one of the following (300 and 500 words) :

  1. There are many moral issues we will cover in the eight weeks, but let us start with what you think is a current moral issue in the United States. In this discussion identify it and present your side of the issue. Then let us know whether you think it will still be an issue in 20 years from now and why.
  2. An ancient legend tells the story of Gyges, a poor shepherd who found a magic ring in a fissure opened by an earthquake. The ring would make its wearer invisible, so he could go anywhere and do anything undetected. Gyges was an unscrupulous fellow, and he quickly realized that the ring could be put to good advantage. We are told that he used its power to gain entry to the royal palace where he seduced the queen, murdered the king, and seized the throne. In no time at all, he went from being a poor shepherd to being king of all the land. Many have claimed that everyone would act the same way as Gyges; some have claimed that there can be formulated theories to explain what morality is, why it is important, and why it has the peculiar hold on us that it does. Do you agree with this premise? Why or why not?
  3. In the Video of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, there is Plato’s story of the cave: “It is the task of the enlightened, not only to ascend to learning and to see the good, but to be willing to descend again to those prisoners and to share their troubles and their honors, withier they are worth having or not. And this they must do even with the prospect of death.” (Plato) Please comment on this video and this quote. [Link to Video, from above.]
