The only reality they knew was demonstrated before them as the shadows of civilians as they passed by them. All seemed normal in their world until one of the prisoners was set free and taken out of the cave. Once his eyes became adjusted, he was able to accept the new reality portrayed all around him.

    Is it true that from the first day you were born until the day you die you are surrounded by false shadows-false shadows that are made by our peers in order to keep us from making our own decisions and realizations? According to “The Myth of the Cave” written by Plato, that is exactly how the world works. From my standing point I couldn’t agree more. Our society is constantly being manipulated. Whether it’s by false advertisements or somebody else’s behavior, society is constantly controlling the way we think.…

    The Allegory of the Cave" by Plato represents a metaphor that is to contrast the way in which we perceive and believe in what is reality. What is reality exactly? What may we see that others may not? These questions can be simply answered with one word: ignorance. Ignorance is what may hold us back from seeing the big picture. In his story, Plato establishes a cave in which prisoners are chained down and forced to look upon the front wall of the cave. Behind the prisoners, lies a bridge, a fire and others whom may cast shadows on the wall that the prisoners may perceive to be reality. The general point thus far of the allegory is that the general terms of our language are not "names" of the physical objects that we can see, such as a desk. We may look at it and see a desk, but what is it really? A piece of wood that is merely attached to metal and a chair? They are actually names of things that are not visible to us, things that we can only grasp with the mind. This is said to be described as "imagination," by Plato. When we are unaware of reality, we become to feel uncomfortable and tend to not open our minds because we are merely in our “comfort zones.” Once we step out of our ignorance (the cave) and see that our “reality” (the shadows) is not true reality (the sun), the ultimate stage of thought has been achieved, and that is…

    In Book 7, Socrates presents the famous metaphor – allegory of cave. The metaphor demonstrates the influence of education on a human soul. People see shadows of statues in the dark place and believe these figures to be real. This shows people’s lowest stage on the Socrates’ line – imagination. When a prisoner is unchained, blinded with the light of fire, within the time he sees that indeed shadows are reflections of statues. This is where belief is represented - he sees the link and percepts this to be real. Finally, the person is taken out of the cave and, blinded within the sunlight, later he sees the real world: real trees, flowers, animals,…

    The inhabitants of the stone and bronze ages of Northern Italy, the region known as modern day Tuscany, eventually developed into the people that are known by others as the Etruscans (Nardo pg.8). The ancient Greeks had other names for them, including the Tyrsenoi or Tyrrhenoi and the Romans moniker for the Etruscans was the Tusci or Etrusci, but the Etruscans called themselves the Rasna or Rasenna. (Barker and Rasmussen pg. 85) If this confusion over a simple name seems odd, it is only the beginning of the mystery concerning this enigmatic culture.…

    Peter Lawless Dr. Gary Dresser First Year Seminar September 4, 2016 The question as to why a person is a certain place at a certain time can befuddle some people. Some people give the straight forward answer saying that they have always wanted to go to a certain place in the view of their own personal interests, but there is a deeper definition as to why that individual is at that school. Plato’s allegory of the cave shows two different stages of education and how they are still present today. Now the question changes and is asked towards me, why am I at Concordia college? I first heard of Concordia through one of my baseball coaches who told me to look into the school for baseball. I did as I was told and as soon as I visited…
