Cueva

Research: ‘Plato’s Cave”

One thought on “Cueva

  1. I found Plato’s cave analogy very interesting and fascinating. According to Plato, the world outside the cave represents different forms of the world while the shadows on the wall represent objects in the physical world. The escape of the prisoner represents philosophical enlightenment and the realization that forms are the true reality. Most people are like the prisoners in the cave because they think the shadows are reality. Philosophers, though, are like the man who escapes the cave and sees the real world and have true knowledge.
