Description

How does Plato’s Socrates explain the fact that the rhapsode Ion is not able to perform in a powerful manner except when he is performing Homer? Does artistic talent give us grounds for admiring the artist on his view? Explain. Why does the fact that the artist is in touch with a higher realm not lead Socrates to claim that the artist can help us gain a vision of the Forms? What does Plato’s Socrates mean when he claims that art is three times removed from the truth? Do you think Plato’s Socrates is right to think that art can give dangerously false views of reality? Why or why not? Can you think of contemporary artworks (whether in the fine or popular arts) that are vulnerable to Socrates’ criticisms? If so, cite an example and explain why his criticisms apply. If not, explain why you think his criticisms do not apply to contemporary artworks.
