LIVING IN THE KNOW
Plato’s Divided Line: A How-To Guide
A talk by Preethi Gopinath
The Divided Line, which appears in Book VI of Plato’s Republic, is a simple yet magnificent illustration of the various levels of knowledge and their relationship to reality, indicated as sections on a straight line.
As we construct and study Plato’s Divided Line, we will find answers to some big questions:
• What do we know?
• Is it knowledge, or is it opinion?
• Is it true?
• How do we know?
Join us for this presentation as we walk the line — from the ever changing world of shadows and opinion into the intelligible world of knowledge and understanding, authored by the Good. Discover how the Divided Line can serve as a guide to find our way to the Good in our own daily living.
