How does Plato’s allegory of the cave represent the education of the philosopher? What are the obstacles to seeking and attaining wisdom? What are the rewards? Consider carefully the different symbols of the allegory. In what way can humankind be seen as living in darkness and ignorance? How are we to be freed from this situation? In what way does the sun represent the “perfect model of the good, the use of which makes all just things and other such become useful and helpful?” (355)
