Philosophy Course - Day Two


Today's summary is more interesting, although I will be equally brief

Lecture / Tute One :
* Evolution selects for altruistic behaviour; those groups then succeed
* Naive responses are to suggest it could never take off, or that a prisoner's dilemma would undermine the group

Lecture / Tute Two :
* Socrates attempts to draw a distinction between power and goodness
* Socrates attempts to argue for restraint as a way to satisfy our desires
