"Behold! Human beings living in an underground den. Like ourselves, they see only their own shadows, or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on the opposite wall of the cave."
With that statement, Plato - one of the greatest thinkers in the history of mankind - introduces one of his of most important philosophical constructs: the relationship between truth and the image of truth.
Adrian Cronauer's voice is full of emotion. His inflections capture the dynamic quality of Plato's The Republic. In Book VII, Plato examines the relationship between truth and the image of truth. Plato's Socratic dialogue has proven to be one of the most important and defining philosophical documents in the history of mankind. Cronauer's performance is stimulating, engaging the listener and making him or her partake in this ageless discussion. The listener will be prompted to examine his or her own thoughts on justice, philosophy, and nation-building.
