1. Read carefully sections 514-517 (from your Cahn text, excerpt of Book 7) of the Republic. In these sections you will find the so-called allegory or metaphor of the cave. 1A. Summarize the key details of this metaphor. Answer: The key details of this metaphor is that people get there knowledge from the world and what they see and hear goes on in the world. Another key detail was the game which represented that everyone can believe that only one person can be there leader. Plato shows that that he actually doesn’t show any truth and you would be crazy to praise somebody like that. 1B. From this metaphor, what can you infer or deduce (at least 3) as Plato’s view of reality? Answer: One of Plato’s views of reality was the cave and that the prisoners have never seen anything besides of the inside. Another view was when a prisoner was correct when they played the game then they would believe that he is smart and master of nature. Another view of reality was when they don’t trust him and if he let them be free then they would kill him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
