Euthyphro dilemma
In Plato's dialogue Euthyphro Socrates asks Euthyphro, "Is the pious loved by the gods because it is pious, or is it pious because it is loved by the gods?"

Notes
1. In a modified form, this dilemma has had a major effect on philosophical theism:

"Is what is morally good commanded by God because it is morally good, or is it morally good because it is commanded by God?"
