Socrates questions Ion, an actor who just won a major prize, about his ability to interpret the epic poetry of Homer. As the dialogue proceeds, the nature of human creativity emerges as a mysterious process and an unsolved puzzle.

A similar discussion between Socrates and Meno probes the subject of ethics. Can goodness be taught? If it can, then we should be able to find teachers capable of instructing others about what is good and bad, right and wrong, or just and unjust. Socrates and Meno are unable to identify teachers of ethics; we are left wondering how to acquire such knowledge.

Agora Productions does it right again.
Sound quality is alright but is only 32kbps for each file(35min and 1h 12m).
Both titles are a great listen and will have you hitting pause and contemplating what was just said.
Update-Download quality is now 64kbps.
