In this lecture Dr. Gregory B. Sadler of Marist College continues his study of Plato's classic dialogue, the "Meno." He works his way into the Platonic "doctrine of recollection," which views learning as a process of being reminded of what one already has learned and thus in some way knows. He also examines the conversation between Socrates, Meno, and Anytus (one of his later accusers) focused on the questions of whether virtue can be taught and whether any of the political leaders actually knew what virtue was and successfully taught it. He finishes by addressing the distinction between knowledge and right opinion.
