    Plato s analogy of the cave is intended to explain our journey to knowledge which is the purpose of philosophy. He does this by comparing an average person to someone who has been confined to an isolated life in a cave with the ability to only look at the shadows casted on the wall. This is symbolic of the average person who has not embarked on the journey to true knowledge and is living their life only seeing what is on the surface, what they want to see. As the person in the cave is released and forced to the surface, they suffer as they are forced to adjust to the sunlight. At first, the person from the cave may not want to be up on the surface of the earth but as their eyes become accustom to the light and they are more comfortable, they enjoy the unfamiliar things they witness. The journey of the man in the cave to the surface of the earth symbolizes the journey of an average person into the world of knowledge and wisdom through philosophy, through looking into the depths of meaning and searching for answers to gain knowledge. Similar to the man in the cave, this journey to knowledge may be uncomfortable at first causing us to question ourselves and our beliefs. However, like the man in the cave, once we embrace this new found knowledge we will want to maintain it and no longer live a life of confinement in our ignorance.

    An excerpt from Plato’s Republic, the ‘Allegory of the Cave’ is a classic commentary on the human condition. It is a story showing how true reality is not always what it seems to be on the surface. It is a story of open-mindedness and the power of possibility.

    And do you see, I said, men passing along the wall carrying all sorts of vessels, and statues and figures of animals made of wood and stone and various materials, which appear over the wall? Some of them are talking, others silent.

    Like ourselves, I replied; and they see only their own shadows, or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on the opposite wall of the cave?

    Socrates. And now, I said, let me show in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened: Behold human beings living in an underground den, which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all along the den; here they have been from their childhood, and have their legs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can only see before them, being prevented by the chains from turning round their heads.

    In allegorical writing characters, actions and setting are used as symbols and they should be interpreted to make the allegorical meaning. In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato has given a description of the cave of the cave world.

    The cave is very dark because there is little light inside it and hardly seen the objects. There are some chained people on their necks as well as feet, these chained people cannot move easily. Similarly, there is also another world out of the cave world, but between these two worlds, a wall is raised. On the wall, many other people move with different things on their hands and their shadows fall in the cave world. The people inside the cave cannot raise their head completely so that they can only see the shadows like illusion, which they believe, as real but it is just their illusion.

    Great question! For me, Plato's republic generally, and the Allegory of the Cave, specifically always represented "freedom" and the various levels (or degrees) iof freedom limited by our humanity. I believe a previous respondent gets at the "senses versus forms" fairly well but, for me anyway, the explanation was rather dense. Nevertheless, the allegory is about reality (via our human senses) and the restrictions placed on our existence if we only judge life by this -in Plato's view- ersatz reality. And therein is the nexus. that is, the overarching theme of "freedom" that guides the allegory of the cave. It is essentially the freedom of being released from the restrictive bindings that hold each of us (as humans) in our cave. of being released from a false reality that is created and sustained by "shadows" of the "real and substantive". of being emancipated from the thinking that comes from simply seeing and perceiving, and being elevated to the thinking that comes from being reflective and introspective. In short, Plato is clearly positing that sensory perceptions are indeed illusion and, by default, if humans only rely on their senses, then life is limited to living like prisoners in a cave, only "seeing" and "interpretating" the sensations governed by images on a cave wall. However, once free from the chains, once free to turn around and consider the flames and objects casting these illusionary images, then humans are set free to not only challenge the source of the illusions, but more importantly, begin to challenge their assumptions.

    First of all it's difficult and, in many instances, an arguable analogy. The first source below gives you an excellent analysis of Plato's analogy of the divided line - the philosophical. Concentrate on this point of the divided line: it clarifies the nature of noesis to other kinds of knowledge, which are presented mainly by way of contrast -- four in all. Second to understand this analogy and give a more comprehensive analogy go to an example of how it is applied. The second source below gives you an example of how the analogy may work towards a problem of today - the practical application. Good luck on your research. Thanks for the question.
