1.Apply Plato’s Allegory to Life Today: More than two thousand years later, how is this allegory relevant to our lives today? In what ways might Plato’s allegory still be relevant? Or, conversely, if it is outdated and irrelevant, how so? Many have already used Plato’s allegory to better understand and explain complex topics in our modern world. A few examples, journalists and other writers have used the allegory of the cave to symbolize the modern surveillance state and the oppression of poverty, just to name a couple. If we are living in a cave where reality is constructed by someone else, who or what are the puppeteers? Think of a topic where people might mistake a shadow world for true reality, and 

then write an essay detailing how the symbolism and various aspects of Plato’s allegory can help readers gain a deeper insight. Please explain.

Your essay should have a clear introduction, a clear and complex thesis, make multiple well supported points and have a conclusion that does more than merely restate your thesis. When citing a text, include page numbers in parentheses after the quote in the body of your paper and include its reference at the bottom of your essay. Please do a final proofreading of your essay, double checking things like grammar, usage, spelling and clarity of ideas.
