The Argument On Virtue In Plato

Satisfactory Essays
Plato searches for that which comes when one understands reality and is not distracted by the senses. He searches for knowledge in its purest form by breaking free of the chains and turning to the sun outside the cave. Like those who remain inside the cave, the beginning of the discussion on virtue in Meno is misleading. However, the truth is revealed when one focuses on the abstract. Plato explains in the theory of forms that to use the idea and not the physical thing itself allows for a true understanding. Which unlike using the physical, does not allow reality to be shadowed by the senses.
