Question:

Why do libraries use the Dewey Decimal System?

Inactive
Michaela W.
Answer:

The Dewey Decimal System was created to keep subjects together in an organized way. Each broad hundred number (000-900) has a different subject and gets more narrow as the numbers get more specific. Many libraries have moved away from this system in favor of a more customer friendly model, similar to bookstores.

Answer:

The shadows cast on the wall of the cave represent reality as it is known to man within the cave; because man is unable to see the actual objects casting the shadows, man believes the shadows to be the actual objects.
