  The Internet Classics Archive | Meno by Plato
O Meno, there was a time when the Thessalians were famous among the other Hellenes only for their riches and their riding; but now, if I am not mistaken, they are equally famous for their wisdom, especially at Larisa, which is the native city of your friend Aristippus.
Yes, Meno; and again we are in the same case: in searching after one virtue we have found many, though not in the same way as before; but we have been unable to find the common virtue which runs through them all.
I am afraid, Meno, that you and I are not good for much, and that Gorgias has been as poor an educator of you as Prodicus has been of me. Certainly we shall have to look to ourselves, and try to find some one who will help in some way or other to improve us.

 Encyclopedia: Meno (Plato)
The dialogue starts with Meno asking Socrates to tell him what virtue is. Socrates, in his usual style, professes ignorance.
Meno suggests that there are many different types of virtues, for example, some are appropriate for men, some for women, some for slaves, others for children.
Meno adds that the good things must be obtained in the right way, so being wealthy would be a virtue if the wealth were obtained in a just way.

 [No title]
Meno is very ready to admit that justice is virtue: 'Would you say virtue or a virtue, for there are other virtues, such as courage, temperance, and the like; just as round is a figure, and fl and white are colours, and yet there are other figures and other colours.
The Meno goes back to a former state of existence, in which men did and suffered good and evil, and received the reward or punishment of them until their sin was purged away and they were allowed to return to earth.
MENO: O Socrates, I used to be told, before I knew you, that you were always doubting yourself and making others doubt; and now you are casting your spells over me, and I am simply getting bewitched and enchanted, and am at my wits' end.

Meno is a (Click link for more info and facts about Socratic) Socratic dialogue written by (Ancient Athenian philosopher; pupil of Socrates; teacher of Aristotle (428-347 BC)) Plato.
The (The lines spoken by characters in drama or fiction) dialogue starts with Meno asking Socrates to tell him what (A particular moral excellence) virtue is. Socrates, in his usual style, professes (The lack of knowledge or education) ignorance.
Without defining virtue, the Meno concludes with Socrates saying "Then, Meno, the conclusion is that virtue comes to the virtuous by the gift of (The supernatural being conceived as the perfect and omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe; the object of worship in monotheistic religions) god.

 Plato's Meno
Meno says that courage, temperance, and wisdom are virtues, but Socrates says that this answer does not define what is shared by all virtues.
Meno then says that virtue is a desire for honorable things, and that it is also the power to attain them.
Meno realizes that his previous certainty about the nature of virtue has been thrown into doubt, and that he must reexamine his assumptions about how virtue is to be defined.

 QUESTIONS ON THE MENO
Meno's answer, "leadership ability," is subverted immediately by applying it to the example of slaves for whom Socrates ironically notes Meno would not find leadership ability "excellent." What is the next criticism Socrates makes of Meno's definition and why is it especially appropriate at this moment?
After Meno refuses to make the effort of inquiry, Socrates gives in and gives a definition of "shape" saying that he would be satisfied if Meno would give a similar definition of virtue.
Socrates accommodates Meno's objection with another paradigm which he disclaims-- a geometrical or, properly, analytical(still a paradigm of mathematical reasoning) one which proceeds from the definition of simpler to more complex concepts.

 20th WCP: The Project of Self-Education in Plato’s Protagoras, Gorgias, and Meno
Socrates then asks Meno—mimicking Meno’s own language about torpedo fish and speeches before large audiences—whether the slave is better off now, knowing that he does not know, than when he thought wrongly that he knew, and whether the slave has been harmed by being made perplexed and numb.
Meno appears to agree that the slave is better off and that he has not been harmed.
The recollection of the Meno is the precisely paired opposite to Callicles’ withdrawal from conversation in the Gorgias; "recollection" merely names the activity of the interlocutor which has, all along, been implied by the nature of Socratic conversation.

 Higgins / SOCRATES' EFFECT/MENO'S AFFECT: SOCRATIC ELENCHUS AS KATHARTIC THERAPY
Meno expresses a desire to learn from Socrates, but mixed in with this desire is a hint of challenge.
While Meno’s exact motivations are impossible to infer from the text, it is safe to say that he engages Socrates with a concern of his, and that he is interested in hearing Socrates’; views on the subject, or in exploring it jointly.
Meno’s inwardness during his aporia is exemplified by his “literal” numbness; he is, in other words, attending only to that which arises from within and is numb to the stimuli of the external world.

 Meno, by Plato (meno)
MENO: Quite right; and that is just what I am saying about virtue—that there are other virtues as well as justice.
SOCRATES: I told you, Meno, just now that you were a rogue, and now you ask whether I can teach you, when I am saying that there is no teaching, but only recollection; and thus you imagine that you will involve me in a contradiction.
MENO: I admit the cogency of your argument, and therefore, Socrates, I wonder that knowledge should be preferred to right opinion—or why they should ever differ.

And so, Meno, this is the way in which you mock me. Men.
But if not by knowledge, the only alternative which remains is that statesmen must have guided states by right opinion, which is in politics what divination is in religion; for diviners and also prophets say many things truly, but they know not what they say.
Then, Meno, the conclusion is that virtue comes to the virtuous by the gift of God.

 Meno
Meno, one of Plato's most famous dialogs, concerns the meaning of virtue, but takes an interesting side track into the true nature of learning, which in turn "proves" that the soul is immortal and we have had an infinite number of lives prior to this one.
Although he certainly cannot remember the theorum all by himself, with a little "midwifery" (the Socratic method of question and answer), the slave boy apparently gives answers that suggest he understands the theorum even though he never encountered it in this life.
In exactly the same way, Meno "recollects" that learning is really a kind of remembering of what we already know and, oh yes, that the soul is immortal!

 Meno   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Here Meno poses a question to Socrates, and Socrates uses a style of cross-examination known as elenchus to put Meno into a state of aporia, or uncertainty.
This uncertainty is compared by Meno to the numbness caused by a torpedo fish.
His reasoning behind this is that when once someone believed that they were completely knowledgeable on a subject (so much that they would gladly teach others of it), after becoming numb they do not know anything about it except that they know nothing about it and they would be very glad to learn of it.

 Plato [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
No one really knows what happens after death, but it is reasonable to think that death is not an evil; there may be an afterlife, in which the souls of the good are rewarded, and the souls of the wicked are punished (Apology 40c-41c; Crito 54b-c; Gorgias 523a-527a).
A mere list of examples of some ethical value-even if all are authentic cases of that value-would never provide an adequate analysis of what the value is, nor would it provide an adequate definition of the value term that refers to the value.
In the early transitional dialogue, the Meno, Plato has Socrates introduce the Orphic and Pythagorean idea that souls are immortal and existed before our births.
