Socrates Paper work to discern and construct the worldviews emerging out of the readings for each of the key figures examined in the course (Socrates, Krishna, and Siddhartha). It should include two parts: (i) describing how the figure/tradition would answer 4 fundamental questions (you can choose any 4 from our list of 8), and (ii) providing at least one critique of the figure/tradition based (in part) upon the criteria for worldview assessment. The question of origin focuses on why there is something rather than nothing. In the reading, it states, In the earliest ages of the gods, existence was born from nonexistence¬Ě (Rig-Veda 10.72). Basically, everything was already in existence, and this ultimate reality is called Brahman. Anything that has been created, in a sense, is a manifestation of Brahman. Therefore, there is something because there is Brahman. This is assumed when we read, the life force that was covered with emptiness once arose through the power of heat. Desire came upon that one in the beginning¬Ě (Rig-Veda 10.129). In other words, the reality that humanity perceives developed from the ultimate reality wanting something more.
