Socrates didnt have a job at least not one where he earned money. In the Apology he talks repeatedly about how poor he is. Apparently Socrates received welfare from the city of Athens, which may have been supplemented by wealthy friends that believed in Socratess philosophical mission. He wouldnt have wanted a job, because he wanted to be free to serve his community through philosophy as he thought the gods had commanded him (Apology, 23b). But lets imagine Socrates was applying for a job anyway. In fact, imagine Socrates was applying for your job either the job you currently have or the job you hope to get after you graduate from college.
For this journal, write a job résumé and application cover letter for Socrates. Based on the way his character is portrayed in the assigned reading, come up with some creative ways to list any of Socratess experience and skills that might be relevant in todays workforce, specifically in your area of employment. Socrates might not really be qualified for your job, but thats okay. Your goal is to imagine as many of his humanities-based skills as possible that are relevant in some way to your job. (my job is Social Service Director)
Based on the Apology and Phaedo, write a one-page imaginary résumé for Socrates, listing at least ten humanities-based skills. Then write a two-page cover letter explaining a bit more about three or four of those skills. In the cover letter, say what job you are imagining Socrates applying for, and give evidence from the assigned reading to show that Socrates has some specific skills relevant to success in that job. Cite specific passages by Stephanus page (e.g., 57b, 17a, etc.).
