This coming week we will continue to explore the discipline called Metaphysics. Address the following two questions in light of this week’s readings and video:
Using our reading on Metaphysics and Plato’s Allegory of the Cave along with the video Is Reality Real? explain the relationship between Plato’s metaphysics and the metaphysical fallacy of reductionism. In other words, explain how Plato’s metaphysics (described in the Allegory) shows how reductionismis indeed a fallacy.
Share what stood out to you in the readings and/or the video.
