    anything‚ especially something as complex as piety confuses the issue. Socrates is presented with Euthyphro’s idea of piety. That‚ in and of itself would not be enough‚ in my mind to define piety. Yet I’ll assume that Socrates‚ being the curious individual that he was‚ asked others about piety‚ and that should be enough to find a definition. Ethical relativism‚ an idea that Socrates uses to make several arguments‚ is in a sense‚ the “essence” of piety. Piety is different from person to person‚ so

    Piety is a Part of Justice: Euthyphro’s suggestion that piety is a part of justice is perhaps as close to a definition of piety that we ever receive in the dialogue of Euthyphro. This is because of all the explanations offered by Euthyphro‚ this one comes closest to measuring piety with a valid‚ universal standard. Euthyphro’s first suggestion‚ that piety is what he is doing now‚ is not only merely an example‚ not a definition‚ but Euthyphro is so pompous as to use himself as the standard with
