Drawing Shadows on the Wall

Teaching Philosophy 24 (2):121-132 (2001)
Abstract
This paper incorporates the work that Jeffrey Gold, Jim Robinson, and Jonathan Schonsheck have done into an innovative method for teaching Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. The method involves breaking students into small groups and asking them to draw three images that depict the plot of the Allegory of the Cave. In addition to giving a description of this activity and detailing the pedagogical benefits, the paper considers possible objections to this exercise and suggests that this method provides a model that can be used to teach other highly descriptive images that are found in philosophical texts
