Students will use "Plato's the Cave" to think outside the box.
Plato's Cave (animated version)
Can the people in the cave truly be held responsible for their “error” of not
knowing about the real world? The fact that they were chained and held in a cave

responsible for something they had done, or not done, based on lack of knowledge
over which they have no control?
