This week, I’m helping a student read Book VII of the Republic. It was written by Plato in 360 B.C.E.. We are reading the translation by Benjamin Jowett. It is available online at the Internet Classics Archive.
My student’s project, for his Global Studies class at San Dominico School, is to create a video in which he explains the Allegory of the Cave and its moral.
Here is a good Wikipedia page on the Allegory of the Cave.
