Discussion Board: Applying Plato’s “Allegory Of The Cave” To Your Own Life
Watch (or listen to) the following YouTube narration of Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave.” The Allegory of the Cave by Plato (Excerpt from The Republic) (Links to an external site.)
Read the “Allegory of the Cave.”
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.
