1. ASSIGNMENT

DEAR DIARY

Let us assume that Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, and Hume kept daily diaries of their thoughts. Choose one of the ancient Greek philosophers (Socrates, Plato, or Aristotle) and one of the modern European philosophers or protopsychologists (Descartes, Locke, or Hume). Write a diary entry (1–2 page maximum) from each of these gentlemen that discusses a central theme in their respective beliefs. Be creative, but stay factual.

Make sure that you evaluate the points of view or central themes you have identified for each of the two philosophers you have chosen. Include material that illustrates the culture and time period in which they lived. Analyze the influences of social and cultural conditions on the philosophers. Describe how the different perspectives from the different time periods led to distinctive beliefs about social issues.

You do not need an index or abstract for this paper. Use the APA Style Paper Template linked in the Resources.
