Plato's "Allegory of the Cave" is what many believe to be the foundation of Western Philosophy. It addresses what is visible and invisible, seen and observed versus sensed and imagined, and what is public versus private and just versus unjust. It also concerns the meaning and importance of education, the state of the soul, the conflict between truth and beauty, animal urges versus higher aspirations, knowledge versus ignorance, and on and on. With this audio book, you will hear the original Allegory of the Cave and much more in less than 60 minutes. To improve your understanding of Plato's allegory, we have included original commentary surrounding this subject. This information is intended to give you a fuller understanding of the allegory. Fewer people than you may think have read or even heard of the Allegory of the Cave. Fewer still have read or heard of Plato's The Republic. If you are seeking to boost your performance in school, or if you are just curious, this audio program will put you ahead of the class!
