Essays on plato's psychology by ellen wagner

In Plato's view, the generally accepted notion of education constituted the forcing of thoughts into children's minds. This is not how it should be, because the ability to think is within each one of us, "our argument shows that the power and capacity of learning exists in the soul already"  [ 13 ]  , and by not understanding, it signifies that one is held by the bonds within the cave. If the soul is bound by the bonds of such things as suffering or pleasure it is unable to consider the unchanging patterns of things through its own knowledge. Plato advocates that education means saving the soul from passions and turning the soul in the direction of knowledge. "They will begin by sending out into the country all the inhabitants of the city who are more than ten years old, and...children...will be unaffected by the habits of their parents; these they will train in their own habits and laws, I mean in the laws which we have given them: and in this way the State and constitution of which we were speaking will soonest and most easily attain happiness, and the nation which has such a constitution will gain most."  [ 14 ]
