Exploring “Allegory of the Cave” with Paul Stern and Robert Dawley, in collaboration with CUHK

8 min read

Students in CIE sections led by Paul Stern, professor of politics, and Robert Dawley, professor of biology and co-director of the Parlee Center for Science and the Common Good, are collaborating with students in CUHK’s “In Dialogue with Nature,” which is part of the General Education Foundation Program for first-year students.

Over the course of the semester, students study two texts: one from the Ursinus syllabus (The Allegory of the Cave, an excerpt from Plato’s The Republic) and one from the CUHK syllabus (Science and Civilisation in China by Joseph Needham).
