Plato’s Allegory of the Cave is one of the most often debated and most commonly cited philosophical metaphors.  Depending on your perspective, it can either be a metaphor for the way we learn or a political story about the way our leaders should behave.  Either way, the imagery Plato uses in the allegory has captivated the imaginations of people for centuries.

Recently, artists CTopkis and JTopkis interpreted the Allegory of the Cave as an instagram comic.  It’s a creatively vital use of an emerging medium, and absolutely worth your time.
