The Allegory of the Cave as modern-day drama

“Socrates: Why do people think philosophy is bullshit? Let me put it this way – imagine you’re in a cave, all chained up so you can’t turn your body at all, and all you get to look at is this one wall. Some idiots behind you are making shadow puppets using the light from a fire and making echo noises and that’s all you or anyone else chained up has seen or heard all your life. Sounds terrible, right?”

From “Plato’s ‘The Allegory of the Cave’: A Summary” on the PhilosophyBro website
