What is reality?  What is the meaning of life?  What is truth?

  • Instead of creating a drawing of inside the cave, use that space tow rite a one to two paragraph reflection of how the allegory relates to you.  Some questions to think about or answer if you’re stuck:  what is Plato saying about education? How do people gain knowledge?  Is there anything in our world that is like shadows on the wall?  Is there anything like the sun (wisdom)?
  • Plato’s Allegory of the Cave – animated
  • TedEd Allegory of the Cave by Alex Gendler
