I agree with Ebert. His argument about truth and reality is that reality is subjectiveand the truth is based on human interpretation: it means that truth is different in peoplesince they have different perspective or interpretation from others. This does not applyto mathematics because there is only one answer: “1+1=2” and “5*6=30” no matterhow much people try. However, when people look into an event, it is likely that people can not fully agreeon what they think has happened. As the theory, “distinguish reality from appearance”,we may be misinterpreting, failing to notice all details of an event and misrememberingwhat we have seen. This theory claims that we can not abundantly believe what we seebecause perception can influence the way we see reality and thus what we see might notbe the actual reality. For example, in Socrates’ Allegory of the Cave, to anyone go inside the cave andlook at people who are chained in the cave, those chained people look like they are justin the cave; however, for those who are chained, the cave is the reality.Therefore, a truthwould be different in each of us because truth depends on how we perceive things. Ebert’s idea can be seen when he analyzed a film, “Rashomon(羅生門)” by aJapanese director, Akira Kurosawa, saying, “Film cameras are admirably literal, andfaithfully record everything they are pointed at. Because they are usually pointed at realthings, we usually think we can believe what we see.” In this quote, Ebert explains thatpeople often think that what they are seeing is reality and there is no other world exists. Therefore, I agree with Ebert idea because people see events differently due to theirown perspective, and thus truth is strongly associated with perception and reality is verysubjective.
