There’s something about Plato’s Allegory of the Cave that inspires people to get creative. Orson Welles once narrated an animated adaptation of the Cave allegory. The folks at Bullhead Entertainment brought to life the allegory appearing in Book VII of Plato’s Republic using some fine claymation. And Alex Gendler recently crafted a version in an aesthetic that calls Dr. Seuss to mind. Now, comes another one by The School of Life, done in a style reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s cut-out animations for Monty Python. It’s part of a series of 22 animated philosophy videos, which takes you from the Ancients (Aristotle, Plato, and the Stoics) straight through to the Moderns (Sartre, Camus, and Foucault).
