A recent visit to Argentina
Earl Shorris shares an encounter with teenagers, talking about the Allegory of the Cave (from Plato's Republic) and asks the question: Do you wish to start the path of wisdom?

Shorris is the founder of the Clemente Course in the Humanities, a college level course aimed at people living in poverty, and to help them develop critical thinking, argumentative capacity, evaluate the taste for art, reflect on history, logic, known works of literature, and apply this new ability to thinking in any field. The Course is free and today is taught in 17 states in the United States, Canada, Mexico, South Korea, Africa and Australia.
