Plato: Meno

The Meno is among the most famous of Plato's shorter dialogues, thanks to Socrates exposition of the theory of innate knowledge or anamnesis, by using close questioning to elicit from a slave geometrical knowledge that he did not know he had. The problem to which this theory is a response, of how we can come to know anything of which we are originally ignorant, has become known as Meno's paradox.
