Education and Plato's Parable of the Cave.
Losin, Peter
Journal of Education, v178 n3 p49-65 1996
The educator's job is, in part, to reorient the student toward the truth and to encourage further cognitive development. Book VII of Plato's "Republic" outlines a curriculum that can orient the student toward truth. The curriculum outlined by Plato still forms the basis of much liberal arts education. (SLD)
