Read/view “Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, ”the Stephen Brookfield Critical Thinking video, and This is Water by David Foster Wallace video. Ask yourself, “Is there a difference between my perception of reality and reality itself?” Respond to this question while considering the following:

  • What are steps I can take to overcome my distorted vision so that I might learn to understand more about the world?
  • Who has enhanced my knowledge of reality?  
  • Who has manipulated my mind in relation to reality?  
  • How can I break free from the bonds of those who seek to manipulate me?
