Alegory of cave, philosophy homework help

2 pages double spaced

In our reading from Republic (and also in Phaedo)
Plato talks about men having souls: he
gives various reasons. Please choose quotes from the
reading and then explain to me how you
understand them in your own words.

1. In “Republic” explain in your words how

you


understand
what role the soul plays in

allowing



man

to leave the “cave”- within the Allegory

of


the
Cave (Republic). Use Plato’s own words and
his world view. Place yourself within Plato’s
time as if you are there with him. Remember:
this is a pre-Christian world, so try to not use

concepts


from
a later era as best as you can.
