Abstract

We consider that writing is broader and more creative; and diverse forms such as fictional novels and fairy tales could represent writing. In the meanwhile, reality reflects what true is, and is limited by the truth. However, this article argues that writing represents the opposite of reality by “offer your pupils the appearance of wisdom, not true wisdom” [1] in three texts Phaedrus of Plato, “Plato’s Pharmacy” of Derrida, and “Gorgias” of Plato.
