Plato's “Allegory of the Cave” illustrates the movement of a man from ignorance to enlightenment, and then reveals man's inability to ever return to the unknowing and innocent state in which he existed before. Plato believed that when someone lives a sterile life, wherein only his/her understanding is the only one that exists, and does not contribute anything, that life is a not one worth living, as stagnation is the only thing that exists. A life that is worth living, to Plato, is one where the pleasures of learning, honor, and money exist in abundance. He believed that philosophers have the best lives.
