The PLATO quiz

23 September 2015

1 – Does the “dividing line” divide, or unite things – and how?

2 – How can we learn to see the Ideas (or Forms), both from within ourselves and from the world around us? Do we ‘see’ the Forms of abstract things (e.g. beauty or love) differently compared to the way we see the Forms of visible things like pens or apples?

3 – Why is Good the supreme Form, and why does Plato choose the sun to be its representation?

4 – Do we become better people, when we “see” things more clearly? Can you give an example of a situation when this happened to you?
