Write an essay in which you discuss the limits of human conditions illustrated in Plato`s Myth of the Cave. What do the chains stand for in the Myth of the Cave? Who put the prisoners in chains? Why did Plato say that “the prisoners are like ourselves” and “the prison is the world we see with our eyes”? Offer some examples of biases that originated from our biological, social and /or culture conditions. Use your own personal experience, example from Sophocles’s plays, or from the movie The Last Emperor to support your points.
