Name: Professor: Course: Date: Introduction The Allegory of the Cave is a piece of Plato's philosophical writing that was written in the form of the allegory. He presents it as a dialogue between Socrates and Glaucon. The Allegory of the Cave was extracted from Plato's classical book called the Republic. It is worth noting that an allegory is a piece of writing that portray two types of meanings. The first meaning is the literary, which simply portrays the face value of the subject matter. The second meaning is allegorical, which portrays the symbolic aspect of the subject matter. In this piece of writing, Plato is trying to communicate that it is very difficult to understand and prove things that we sense with our sight sense. Through Allegory of the Cave, Plato is trying to portray the truth by encouraging the people to be open-minded when approaching matters affecting humanity (Duarte 69). Therefore, this paper will cover my understanding of the Plato's Allegory of the Cave as well as determining whether it is a persuasive view of philosophy. Just like any other allegorical work, Plato used the setting, characters, and actions to communicate to the audience. From the writing, it is evident that darkness surrounded the cave and the objects around the cave were not visible enough. However, some people appeared to be having chains on both the necks and the feet. The chains hindered their movements. Apart from the cave, the writing also revealed the outside the cave's surrounding. However, there is a big divide in the form of a wall that separated the cave and the rest of the world. From the cave, the people inside can see the shadows of the people moving
