Using Plato’s Allegory to Explain the “Socratic Riddle” Consider this puzzling statement attributed by Plato to Socrates and paraphrased below: “If I am the wisest of men, it is only because, whereas other men think know when they do not, I know that I don’t know.” In a short, typewritten paper of about three to five pages, explain for the reader what is puzzling about this statement and what Socrates most probably meant by it. Then, select one incident from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave that best serves to illustrate the meaning of this statement. Take care to acquaint the reader with whatever references you may make in your paper.
