How the prisoner slowly comprehends the true nature of reality

  • How Plato is representing the world of appearance and the realm of the Forms

  • What might happen if the prisoner tried to go back

  • That Plato is trying to explain how we come to concepts such as truth, justice, eternity or beauty

    In this answer you are just ‘explaining’ so there is no need to criticise or analyse what Plato is saying: this is what you are being asked to do in Part b.

    Part (b)

    This question is asking you to analyse the extent to which Plato is right to say that those who are not philosophers are living in a shadow world. There are many ways of doing this and you are free to choose whichever you prefer, provided you use evidence to support your views.
