Explain how the movie raises questions similar to those found in Plato’s and Descartes’ philosophy (CO5 & CO6). Do not give a plot summary of the movie – focus on the philosophical issues raised in the movie as they relate to Plato and Descartes, and defend a thesis related to one of the philosophical issues (skepticism or dualism). Socrates asks Euthyphro, “Are morally good acts willed by God because they are morally good, or are they morally good because they are willed by God?” (1) How does this question relate to the Divine Command Theory of morality? (2) Is Divine Command Theory and accurate or plausible moral theory? Defend a view and support your thesis (CO4). Explain (1) the process by which Descartes tries to refute skepticism (including discussion of The Cogito), and (2) what first principle does this lead him to?
