In the study of human beings and society, we take Platonic philosophy and the “Myth of the cave” as landmarks. The myth suggests the path from ignorance to wisdom and light in the social and political aspect, and reveals the danger of social manipulation. We analyze the reflection of the archetypal pyramid of the Platonic ideal world in hu, a society based on the 4 virtues: Justice, Goodness, Beauty and Truth. At the end, the participants drew the myth of the cave on paper, and explained the message they wanted to convey in the drawing, providing arguments and examples from today’s society.
