March 30: The Cave Allegory

Plato’s cave allegory is one of the most well-known passages in the history of philosophy. We will read the passage and discuss what Plato is trying to say about knowledge and education.

Philosophy for Lunch happens every Wednesday from 12–1PM, Dickson Hall, 430.

What is P4L?  Students and professors close-read and discuss a few of the greatest passages in the history of philosophy. 

Who's invited?  No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!

Should I bring anything?  Bring a beverage, and if you're hungry, bring your actual lunch.

Brought to you by the new Department of Philosophy at Montclair State University
