Book cover

Eutifrón, a dialogue written by Plato, explores the nature of piety and ethics through the conversation between Socrates and Euthyphro. The two characters discuss the meaning of piety and whether actions are pious because the gods command them or if the gods command them because they are pious. This leads to thought-provoking discussions on the nature of morality, religion, and divine command theory.

Plato's writing is engaging and thought-provoking, as he delves into the complexities of ethical dilemmas and challenges the reader to consider their own beliefs and values. The dialogue format allows for a dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives, making it a compelling read for those interested in philosophy and ethics.

Overall, Eutifrón is a fascinating exploration of morality and religion that continues to be relevant in contemporary discussions on ethics. Plato's timeless insights and philosophical musings make this dialogue a must-read for anyone interested in delving deeper into the complexities of human behavior and belief systems.

Book Description:
La naturaleza de la santidad, o usando el lenguaje de Platón, lo santo, ocupa el fondo del diálogo; y un supuesto encuentro del adivino Eutifrón con Sócrates es lo que da origen a la cuestión. Eutifrón pretende realizar un acto santo, reclamado por la justicia, pidiendo, con ocasión de la muerte de un esclavo, una condena contra su padre. Sócrates representa en este caso la conciencia moral y la razón. Grabación realizada en colaboración: Tux, Epachuko y KevinS. La composición se terminó durante la pandemia del Covid-19, en abril de 2020.
