In Plato's allegory of The Cave, he says that a man's path to becoming a philosopher cannot be complete unless the enlightened man goes back into the cave and pulls another man out of the darkness. Why do you think this last step is so important for the philosopher on his journey?
I agree with Plato that this would be the most important step on the philosopher's journey. Learning and discovering on your own is great, but in order for that knowledge to be actualized you have to put it to use by sharing it with others. Every great philosopher did this whether it was by creating his own school where he could share his thoughts with his pupils or if he just engaged men on the street in conversation. If you just keep all of your knowledge and insight to yourself and do not share it with the world, you are hindering human advancement and keeping more people in the dark.
In Virginia Woolf's work "A Room of One's Own", Woolf makes the claim that all a woman needs in order to create fiction is a room of her own and 500 pounds of income a month. Do you think her opinion is still valid in the present day, or do you think that it is now outdated?
I think that Woolf's opinion is still valid today. I do not think that the room of one's own has to quite literally be a room. I think that the room could be any space where a woman feels safe and at home. The room could also be a metaphor for something more abstract like having the confidence or time to sit down and write. I also agree that a woman would need some kind of resource, whether that resource is money or an education that would allow her to be able to write and tell her story.
