1. Discuss the differences between Protagoras’s relativism and Socrates’s dialectic method in terms of what is assumed about the nature of Truth. Each philosopher has his own conception of what is truth, and that conception drives his methodology.
2. Determine which view of truth you agree with and explain why. Don’t get caught up in the notion of absolute truth because none of us have it all figured out exactly, but you should be able to say something about whether you think in every region and every group it is okay to make up rules that fit what the group thinks OR whether there is some objective Truth out there that needs to be discovered and followed by all humans.
