Meno

Book cover
By: (426-347 BCE)

Meno by Plato is a fascinating philosophical dialogue that delves into the nature of virtue and whether it can be taught or is innate. The characters engage in a thought-provoking discussion that challenges readers to ponder the idea of knowledge as recollection and the implications of this theory on our understanding of virtue. The inclusion of real-life examples and Socratic questioning adds depth to the dialogue and encourages readers to critically examine their own beliefs and assumptions. Overall, Meno is a thought-provoking and engaging read that will leave readers pondering the nature of virtue and the complexities of human knowledge.

Book Description:
Meno (Ancient Greek: Μένων) is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato. Written in the Socratic dialectic style, it attempts to determine the definition of virtue, or arete, meaning in this case virtue in general, rather than particular virtues, such as justice or temperance. The goal is a common definition that applies equally to all particular virtues. Socrates moves the discussion past the philosophical confusion, or aporia, created by Meno's paradox (aka the learner's paradox) with the introduction of new Platonic ideas: the theory of knowledge as recollection, anamnesis, and in the final lines a movement towards Platonic idealism..
