How does one know what is right?

Review Readings & Resources. In a series of dialogues, Socrates and others offer several compelling arguments about justice, the law, and an individual’s ethical duty and relationship to his or her commitments to society in general. In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna and Krishna face a conflict of similar proportion on a battlefield.

Socrates makes a rational appeal to his accusers in the Apology, yet the outcome lands him in jail with a sentence of death. How did this occur, based on the argument that he made and his actions? Later, Socrates and Crito have an interesting talk as Socrates is awaiting death. During that conversation, both characters make legitimate claims regarding duty and responsibility and both offer good reasons for action, yet these decisions are not compatible with one another, for Socrates is in a situation where he cannot choose to fulfill one duty by his decision without breaking another. How does this discussion end, and why does Socrates act the way he does?

Likewise, in the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna is facing a similar issue: how? With whom is he having a discussion? How does this conversation end, and why does Arjuna choose the way he does?

Do you see any similarities or differences in their decision-making? Please discuss. Write 500–750 words in MLA style typed.(1)
