Evaluate Plato's argument that what is holy and what is approved of by the gods are not the same thing. Is it convincing? Can you think of any arguments Euthyphro could have given in reply?

What is the most charitable way of reading Euthyphro's suggestion that holiness is a kind of service to the gods? What different ways are there of reading this suggestion and which do you think it the most defensible?

What is the final lesson that we are to draw from the Euthyphro? Why did Plato write it?

Is there a satisfactory definition of holiness? Do either Plato or Socrates think there is? What might this definition be?
