Plato and Nietzsche represent opposites on the philosophy spectrum. Plato believed in a higher realm of "Eternal Forms" which provide the changing things of this world with their truth and purpose (similar to the Christian concept of Heaven). Nietzsche denied there could be a higher realm and urged us to find meaning in ourselves without looking for some kind of higher truth to justify existence. How would each of these thinkers interpret Ahab's quest? How would you? Write a two-paragraph response, first describing Ahab's views on truth, then connecting it to the philosophers.
