the flight of my own intelligence hit the mark.”
Oedipus the King, ll. 452–453
Describe and analyse how Oedipus and Socrates rely on their own intelligence when trying to
solve the puzzles with which they are presented. What implications does this self-reliance have
for the authority of traditional beliefs?

Question 2
Oedipus and Socrates take their obligations to others seriously. How do we see responsibilities
to philoi (friends, kin, community) form part of an idea of acting well in Oedipus the King and the
Socratic dialogues you have studied this semester? Describe and analyse one or two key scenes
from your selected texts in your response
