1. What, according to Socrates, are the forms? What does Plato say in Phaedo and

Symposium about the forms?

2. Why, in Phaedo, does Socrates maintain the existence of the forms? Why does Socrates find

it necessary to invoke them? What does Socrates say in Phaedo?

3. Why does the world of appearances without a corresponding world of forms make no sense

for Socrates? Why are the forms necessary? What does Socrates say in Phaedo?

4. What does Socrates think about the value of human life? What does he say in Book 7 of

the Republic, Apology, Phaedo, and Symposium?

5. When Socrates discusses the forms, does he speak from the standpoint of knowing what

the forms are? Or does he speak from the standpoint of not knowing what the forms are?

What does he say in Euthyphro, Apology, Phaedo, Republic, and Symposium?

6. If Socrates speaks from the standpoint of knowledge, then why does he claim that he has

no knowledge? If Socrates speaks from the standpoint of appearances, what is the nature of

his discussion about knowledge?

7. Does anyone, according to Socrates, possess knowledge? What do Plato’s dialogues show?

8. Why does Socrates argue in Symposium, in his exchange with Agathon, that it is not possible

for one to love what one possesses (or to possess what one loves)? What is his argument, in

this exchange, that desire is always a lack of the object desired?

object of love? Can this highest object be possessed? If so, in what sense? If not, why not?
