Allegory of the Cave

Post  dashas on Fri Jan 30, 2015 10:18 am

In the Allegory of the Cave Plato takes the dark cave, in which the prisoners were only able to see the blank wall full of shades, the people were projecting to them on purpose, as a base. The prisoners thought that the shadows were the reality, because they've never seen the real life. By that Plato states that people don't see the reality unless they are into knowledge and philosophy.

Plato was a wise man, as well as a very tricky one. He liked tricking people philosophically and politically, as well as scientifically. Your right, he did trick them and it did work, they all fell for it. One time, a man actually escaped that and when he turned around, he saw the wall, the props, and the fire. He went outside and found knowledge. He met the real world.

Good Job!!!!!
this is very good information Dasha. It was very interesting because the people that were i that cave didn't know what was going on outside. they only thought that the shadows were the only things in the world, but one of them found a way to escape and he found out that the shadows were not the only thing, but when he told the others they didn't believe him at all.
Nice Work!!

That is very cool Dasha! Great job! I think that the Allegory of the Cave shows really well what Plato thought about the philosophers and the other citizens. Good topic! Very Happy
