Complete the discussion assignment.

Demonstrate your knowledge of Plato’s  dualism (his theory of two realms of knowledge) by applying what you  have learned from the Allegory of the Cave to your own life. Describe in  detail an intellectual experience you have had that illustrates going  from “the cave” to the “upper world.”  Explain which part of your  experience relates to the cave (the physical realm that is based on what  others tell us, or what we see with our eyes), and which part relates  to the upper world (the realm of reasoning and true understanding). I’m  looking for meaningful examples, so don’t use the Easter Bunny, Santa  Claus, the Tooth Fairy, or anything similar.    

1)  Explain how you can apply Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” to your own  life by describing an experience where you moved from the “cave” to the  “upper world” (30 points). Create your own thread (which contains at  least five complete sentences). Please proofread your work. 

2)  Respond intelligently to and engage with at least two classmate (15  points each, 30 points total). Poor responses and engagement will be  discounted.
