Worth The Consequences Of Plato's Cave

Satisfactory Essays
To conclude, the Cave is in significant to Plato's line. He wanted to show how everyone needs to get out of the "cave" and become educated and to come into the highest power of knowledge. Even though when the prisoner went back to the cave to tell everyone what he experienced they don't believe him and even tried to kill him. I believe what he did was worth the consequences because he still shared his knowledge to others to show them the truth. This reminds me of what Bertand Russell said "Enrich our intellectual imagination and diminish the dogmatic assurance which closes the mind against speculations."
