“They’ve been there since childhood, fixed in the same place,

with their necks and legs fettered, able to see only in front of them,

because their bonds prevent them from turning their heads around.”

Length: 3 – 5 pages: 12 font, double spaced, 1-inch margin


Reconstruct Plato’s system of philosophy as found in The Allegory of The Cave, The Euthyphro, and The Apology. The core components of any philosophical system are metaphysics, ontology, epistemology, and ethics. This exam will assess your grasp of basic philosophical concepts and how they function in Plato’s system of philosophy.

Plato intentionally scattered his thought throughout the dialogues. Your job is to reconstruct Plato’s conception of philosophy and the philosophical way of living by isolating and weaving together passages that explicitly or implicitly address Plato’s concept. Go to the parts of the text that resonate with you, that left an impression on you, and ask yourself how does this passage shed light on Plato’s conception of philosophy and the philosophical life. There is not only one right answer, and there is substantial room for creativity – that being said, you must provide textual evidence to support your interpretation.
