Philosophy by the Book Episode 17: Plato's Meno


Sun, Jan 24, 2016


This week we explore the natures of virtue and knowledge in Plato's Meno. Is virtue a type of knowledge and if so, can it be taught? How can we gain any knowledge if we must already have that knowledge in order to know when we have gained it? Is it possible to have knowledge at all? Do human's really learn, or are we simply recollecting things we already know from past lives. All of these questions and more are explored this week in Plato's Meno.
