Plato's cave in clay

This post is dedicated to Laura Sizer. I co-teach classes on science & religion with her (one on the theme of Origins and one on The History and Philosophy of Science & Religion). Every time we teach, she has to explain Plato's allegory of the cave from The Republic. Well, here is a very cool claymation version of the allegory - and I think it does a great job with the visuals (and audio as well - love the camel!). If you want to know more about the meaning of the allegory, check out this excellent episode of Philosophy Bites on the subject. (tip from Open Culture)
