“The Allegory of the Cave.” Excerpt from Plato, Republic, Book VII, 514A1-518D8, translated by Paul Shorey (Loeb Classical Library/Perseus Project). Socrates, Glaucon.
514A

“Next,” said I, “compare our nature in respect of education and its lack to such an experience as this. Picture men dwelling in a sort of subterranean cavern with a long entrance open to the light on its entire width. Conceive them as having their legs and necks fettered from childhood, so that they remain in the same spot, able to look forward only, and prevented by the fetters from turning their heads. Picture further the light from a fire burning higher up and at a distance behind them, and between the fire and the prisoners and above them a road along which a low wall has been built, as the exhibitors of puppet-shows have partitions before the men themselves, above which they show the puppets.” “All that I see,” he said.

515A

“See also, then, men carrying past the wall implements of all kinds that rise above the wall, and human images and shapes of animals as well, wrought in stone and wood and every material, some of these bearers presumably speaking and others silent.” “A strange image you speak of,” he said, “and strange prisoners.” “Like to us,” I said; “for, to begin with, tell me do you think that these men would have seen anything of themselves or of one another except the shadows cast from the fire on the wall of the cave that fronted them?”

B

“How could they,” he said, “if they were compelled to hold their heads unmoved through life?” “And again, would not the same be true of the objects carried past them?” “Surely.” “If then they were able to talk to one another, do you not think that they would suppose that in naming the things that they saw they were naming the passing objects?” “Necessarily.” “And if their prison had an echo from the wall opposite them, when one of the passersby uttered a sound, do you think that they would suppose anything else than the passing shadow to be the speaker?” “By Zeus, I do not,” said he.

C

“Then in every way such prisoners would deem reality to be nothing else than the shadows of the artificial objects.” “Quite inevitably,” he said. “Consider, then, what would be the manner of the release and healing from these bonds and this folly if in the course of nature something of this sort should happen

to them: When one was freed from his fetters and compelled to stand up suddenly and turn his head around and walk and to lift up his eyes to the light, and in doing all this felt pain and, because of the dazzle and glitter of the light, was unable to discern the objects whose shadows he formerly saw, what do you suppose would be his answer if someone told him that what he had seen before was all a cheat and an illusion, but that now, being nearer to reality and turned toward more real things, he saw more truly? And if also one should point out to him each of the passing objects and constrain him by questions to say what it is, do you not think that he would be at a loss and that he would regard what he formerly saw as more real than the things now pointed out to him?” “Far more real,” he said.

E

“And if he were compelled to look at the light itself, would not that pain his eyes, and would he not turn away and flee to those things which he is able to discern and regard them as in very deed more clear and exact than the objects pointed out?” “It is so,” he said. “And if,” said I, “someone should drag him thence by force up the ascent which is rough and steep, and not let him go before he had drawn him out into the light of the sun, do you not think that he would find it painful to be so hauled along, and would chafe at it, and when he came out into the light, that his eyes would be filled with its beams so that he would not be able to see even one of the things that we call real?” “Why, no, not immediately,” he said. “Then there would be need of habituation, I take it, to enable him to see the things higher up. And at first he would most easily discern the shadows and, after that, the likenesses or reflections in water of men and other things, and later, the things themselves, and from these he would go on to contemplate the appearances in the heavens and heaven itself, more easily by night, looking at the light of the stars and the moon, than by day the sun and the sun’s light.” “Of course.” “And so, finally, I suppose, he would be able to look upon the sun itself and see its true nature, not by reflections in water or phantasms of it in an alien setting, but in and by itself in its own place.” “Necessarily,” he said.

C

“And at this point he would infer and conclude that this it is that provides the seasons and the courses of the year and presides over all things in the visible region, and is in some sort the cause of all these things that they had seen.” “Obviously,” he said, “that would be the next step.” “Well then, if he recalled to mind his first habitation and what passed for wisdom there, and his fellow-bondsmen, do you not think that he would count himself happy in the change and pity them?” “He would indeed.”

D

“And if there had been honors and commendations among them which they bestowed on one another and prizes for the man who is quickest to make out the shadows as they pass and best able to remember their customary precedences, sequences and co-existences, and so most successful in guessing at what was to come, do you think he would be very keen about such rewards, and that he would envy and emulate those who were honored by these prisoners and lorded it among them, or that he would feel with Homer and ‘greatly prefer while living on earth to be serf of another, a landless man,’ and endure anything rather than opine with them and live that life?” “Yes,” he said, “I think that he would choose to endure anything rather than such a life.” “And consider this also,” said I, “if such a one should go down again and take his old place would he not get his eyes full of darkness, thus suddenly coming out of the sunlight?” “He would indeed.”

E

517A

“Now if he should be required to contend with these perpetual prisoners in ‘evaluating’ these shadows while his vision was still dim and before his eyes were accustomed to the dark—and this time required for habituation would not be very short—would he not provoke laughter, and would it not be said of him that he had returned from his journey aloft with his eyes ruined and that it was not worth while even to attempt the ascent? And if it were possible to lay hands on and to kill the man who tried to release them and lead them up, would they not kill him?” “They certainly would,” he said.

B

C

“This image then, dear Glaucon, we must apply as a whole to all that has been said, likening the region revealed through sight to the habitation of the prison, and the light of the fire in it to the power of the sun. And if you assume that the ascent and the contemplation of the things above is the soul’s ascension to the intelligible region, you will not miss my surmise, since that is what you desire to hear. But God knows whether it is true. But, at any rate, my dream as it appears to me is that in the region of the known the last thing to be seen and hardly seen is the idea of good, and that when seen it must needs point us to the conclusion that this is indeed the cause for all things of all that is right and beautiful, giving birth in the visible world to light, and the author of light and itself in the intelligible world being the authentic source of truth and reason, and that anyone who is to act wisely in private or public must have caught sight of this.” “I concur,” he said, “so far as I am able.” “Come then,” I said, “and join me in this further thought, and do not be surprised that those who have attained to this height are not willing to occupy themselves with the affairs of men, but their souls ever feel the upward urge and the yearning for that sojourn above. For this, I take it, is likely if in this point too the likeness of our image holds.” “Yes, it is likely.” “And again, do you think it at all strange,” said I, “if a man returning from divine contemplations to the petty miseries of men cuts a sorry figure and appears most

ridiculous, if, while still blinking through the gloom, and before he has become sufficiently accustomed to the environing darkness, he is compelled in courtrooms or elsewhere to contend about the shadows of justice or the images that cast the shadows and to wrangle in debate about the notions of these things in the minds of those who have never seen justice itself?” “It would be by no means strange,” he said.

518A

B

“But a sensible man,” I said, “would remember that there are two distinct disturbances of the eyes arising from two causes, according as the shift is from light to darkness or from darkness to light, and, believing that the same thing happens to the soul too, whenever he saw a soul perturbed and unable to discern something, he would not laugh unthinkingly, but would observe whether coming from a brighter life its vision was obscured by the unfamiliar darkness, or whether the passage from the deeper dark of ignorance into a more luminous world and the greater brightness had dazzled its vision. And so he would deem the one happy in its experience and way of life and pity the other, and if it pleased him to laugh at it, his laughter would be less laughable than that at the expense of the soul that had come down from the light above.” “That is a very fair statement,” he said. “Then, if this is true, our view of these matters must be this, that education is not in reality what some people proclaim it to be in their professions. What they aver is that they can put true knowledge into a soul that does not possess it, as if they were inserting vision into blind eyes.” “They do indeed,” he said. “But our present argument indicates,” said I, “that the true analogy for this indwelling power in the soul and the instrument whereby each of us apprehends is that of an eye that could not be converted to the light from the darkness except by turning the whole body. Even so this organ of knowledge must be turned around from the world of becoming together with the entire soul, like the scene-shifting periact in the theater, until the soul is able to endure the contemplation of essence and the brightest region of being. And this, we say, is the good, do we not?” “Yes.” “Of this very thing, then,” I said, “there might be an art, an art of the speediest and most effective shifting or conversion of the soul, not an art of producing vision in it, but on the assumption that it possesses vision but does not rightly direct it and does not look where it should, an art of bringing this about.” “Yes, that seems likely,” he said.

...RIASSUNTO ECONOMIA E GESTIONE DELLE IMPRESE – LIBRO DI TESTO: L’ANALISI STRATEGICA PER LE DECISIONI AZIENDALI R. GRANT EDIZIONE 2011 CAPITOLO 1 IL CONCETTO DI STRATEGIA Diverse definizioni di strategia 1. La strategia è lo strumento usato dagli individui e organizzazioni per raggiungere i propri obiettivi; 2. Si definisce strategia la determinazione delle finalità e degli obiettivi di lungo periodo di un’ impresa e attuazione delle linee di condotta e allocazione delle risorse necessarie alla realizzazione di tali obiettivi. 3. La strategia è il piano complessivo per lo spiegamento di risorse necessarie a conseguire una posizione di vantaggio sulle altre imprese. 4. Strategia competitiva vuol dire differenziarsi. Vuol dire scegliere deliberatamente un diverso insieme di attività per generare un esclusiva combinazione di valore ( M.Porter) L’essenza della strategia, dunque, consiste nell’effettuare scelte. Affinché una strategia sia di successo è necessario: ▪ Obiettivi siano semplici, coerenti e a lungo termine; ▪ Profonda comprensione dell’ambiente competitivo; ▪ Valutazione obiettiva delle risorse; ▪ Implementazione efficace La strategia ha il ruolo di collegare l’impresa (obiettivi e valori, Risorse e competenze, Struttura e sistemi organizzativi) con l’ambiente settoriale (Concorrenti, Clienti, Fornitori) in cui opera.

Gypsies in the Kaiserreich

...inhabiting German regions being one of them. One of the more notable persecuted minority groups are the Roma and Sinti. While the Gypsies that have long been targeted with discrimination from countries all over the world, they faced intensified hardships in Germany during the second Empire, the Kaiserreich. As a distinctly unique, carefree, smaller minority group to begin with, the Roma were not difficult for the Germans to manage throughout their struggles as a developing nation state. Germany did not want any minorities standing in the way of achieving their goal. To begin, the Roma, Sinti were first recorded on German soil in the early fifteenth century, 1407, in Hildesheim. Gypsies originated in northern India and began their endless migrations in the fifth century, reaching Europe by the first millennium (Panayi 14-15). Negative stereotypes of this nomadic group started developing by the fifteenth century, noting them as thieves and disease-stricken. While the Roma were seen as a nuisance to the German empire, their size was dismal with only 2,000 Gypsies living in Germany by the beginning of the Kaiserreich in 1871. However, this number quickly grew to 8,000 by 1906 and 14,000 by 1926 as a result of immigration from the Balkans (Panayi 95). As wanderers, the Sinti were seen as foreigners and ethnic “outsiders” throughout the entirety of the Kaiserreich. Roma and Sinti were commonly dispersed throughout all of Germany. Prior to the Kaiserreich period, there......

...the alt? I heard somewhere that this is accepted. If not accepted, then do we lose big time marks? If you get a negative NPV for an alternative, you should not be recommending it becaue at the end of the day, every company, even a non for profit, needs to be profitable to survive. If however you feel that this alternative is in fact very strong and touches on a lot of qualitative point, you may want to revisit your NPV calculation and the various assumptions that you have used - take a look at them and see if they are in fact reasonable assumptions (maybe you were too conservative and can adjust some of the assumptions a bit to allow you to get to an NPV of at least 0). I also have Negative NPV for expansion of Roma and Corral. It will take $6100, 000.00 to open one Roma restaurant and Income before tax was only $656,000 + the amortization. It is impossible to have positive NPV. On the other hand, Roco Coffee will provide 5% increase within two years and Debt to Equity ratio was under control, and divided also paid to the common and preferred shares. Calculation also revealed that Bread function should not be outsourced. Please help if some think I am doing wrong. I was wondering if someone else also had the same conclusion. Ali, When calculating NPV did you take into account salvage value, tax shield, etc? I find that often alternatives are built in such a way that NPV can be either negative or positive, depending on the assumptions. First of all, thanks for reply. I......

Global Minority Research

...Ethnicity Research Project Introduction and History The Roma and Irish Travellers are an ethnic minority in England. There is evidence that the Roma originated in North India and started to migrate 1,000 years ago (Van Cleemput). They were forced out of India and used as slaves. I cannot imagine being forced from my homeland and being forced to work for free. The Roma and Irish Travellers face hostility and persecution. The first anti-gypsy law was passed under Henry the VIII (Van Cleemput). I cannot even fathom being told that just because I live a certain lifestyle that I am not allowed to live in a certain area. In the United States, we are faced with discrimination against lesbian and gay couples. Although, they are not allowed to marry, we do not tell them where they can and cannot live. The Roma and Irish Travellers started to travel in small family groups at first (Gmelch and Gmelch). The Roma hold their family close to them. If anything was to happen to anyone in the family they tend to get closer and closer to each other. Aggressive begging, public drunkenness and brawling often occurs after a funeral (Gmelch and Gmelch). Most people assume this is because they have no way to pay for the service or to bury their loved one. Based on my research, I found this to be very plausible. The Roma have arranged marriages known as matching. As a result of matching they have a problem with inbreeding (Gmelch and Gmelch). The Roma have to be careful with their arranged......

Lost in Translation

...Romany Romany, or Romani, is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by about 5-6 million Roma people throughtout Europe and the USA. The largest concetration of Roma people live in Romania. In English these people are often called Gypsies. The language is closely related to the languages of northern India, particularly Punjabi, and the Roma are thought to have originally come from that region. Some people consider Romany to be a group of dialects while others think there are several, closely-related Romany languages. The Muslim invasions of the northern part of the Indian subcontinent around 1000 AD resulted in massive movements of populations, probably including the ancestors of the Roma, who are thought to have moved into Anatolia. In 1300, after the Mongolian invasion of Europe, the Roma moved west into Europe and took up a mainly nomadic lifestyle. Romany alphabet (Romani šib) This is the official standard alphabet for Romany. It was standardized in 1990 at the Fourth World Romani Congress in Serock, Poland. This alphabet is used by all the Romany languages/dialects except Carpathian Romany and Finnish Romany.

...  The Roma Versus The World: The Story of the Most Resilient People in the World  When you travel to Europe, say Paris for instance, and decide to visit someplace like the Eiffel  Tower, chances are you’ll be warned of a group of strange people who may “accidently” bump  into you while sneakily taking your wallet, or who may be sitting on the curb with a suspiciously  peaceful sleeping dog begging for money. ​ (maybe use a black and white video [like in a silent  movie] to depict this)    These people may be darker than your average European, and may be dressed in “exotic”  clothes. They may be fortune tellers, dancers, musicians, nomads. They are friendly to all they  meet. They have a long history and a rich culture. They are the Roma, or gypsies.   (show videos or pictures of stereotypical Roma)    These people have undoubtedly been subjected to the longest running case of systematic  oppression in Europe. From their origins on the Silk Road, to the Holocaust, up until today, the  Roma have been treated as an other, as an undesirable race of thieves and vagrants, despite being  a peaceful people. ​ (not sure if this will depict images of modern Roma or historical...nothing  shocking, I think, but this might change)  Why is this? In order to understand, we must take a step back in time to northern India, circa  1000 CE. ​ (map feature to India)     India had become a religious battleground, as Islamic Arabs from the West clashed with the local  H......
