Summary Group 1 (14)
Our group discussed if "A belief is worth dying for?" We debated the ideas of dying to be a martyr for sentimental reasons, or if it is more effective to renounce beliefs so that they may be taught in other places. Our discussion in class also moved to the ideas and motives of the "martyr" Socrates and of his renowned pupil Plato. We talked of erotic love and the theories of erotic love according to Aristophanes, "Socrates," and Alcibiades.
