Plato’s cave allegory is the subject of ontology by the concepts of world of ideas and world of appearances, and the subject of epistemology by the concepts world of thought and world of sensations. Enlightenment of human through education is the main theme of the cave allegory. It is possible to add a mystical dimension to this theme. The concepts like “chained by the neck and foot from little ages”, “cave”, “darkness”, “shadows”, “fire”, “escaping from chain”, “climbing the hill”, and “sun” may have mystical dimensions.
