Compare and contrast Plato’s theory of Forms with metaphysical beliefs of Taoism

Compare and contrast Plato’s theory of Forms with metaphysical beliefs of Taoism. Be sureto summarize Plato’s various levels of reality and Taoism’s Yin-Yang

Question 1: Compare and contrast Plato’s theory of Forms with metaphysical beliefs of Taoism. Be sure
to summarize Plato’s various levels of reality and Taoism’s Yin-Yang conception. You’d do well to inform
the general reader about what the Forms are and the relationship of Yin-Yang have in philosophical
Taoism. Devote at least 1 page to Plato’s theory of Forms and at least 1 page to Taoism’s metaphysical
tenets. Be sure to document any external sources used. Then, in a second part to this question, you
should try and offer a reason why you think one version of reality is true than the other (2 pages).
Question 2: In the reading with Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics detail the reasons why pleasure is not
the highest good, but why it is the case that virtue leads to happiness. Recall that a virtue is defined for
Aristotle as a reliable disposition displayed over time. You’d do well to pay attention to some of the
videos on Aristotle on virtue as well as what is meant by excess and deficiency in relationship to virtue
as well as my lectures on virtue in your personal notes (1 and half pages).
Question 3: Compare and contrast the major ethical tenets of Buddhism with the agapic conception of
love in Christianity. What about them is different regarding salvation in Christianity and mindfulness in
Buddhism? Your answer must include an explanation of the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, and
the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount we read in the Gospel of Matthew (two pages). You may
include other Christian sources of insight if you wish.
