Publisher's Summary

Widely considered one of the fathers of Western philosophy, Plato wrote "The Allegory of the Cave", part of his most important and influential pieces of work in Republic, in order to examine, discuss, and compare the effects of education (or lack thereof), human nature and the human condition, and philosophy as a whole. This simplistic and ingenious allegory casts light on society’s naiveté and ignorance, even today.
