"Meno" in context

Meno is the fourth dialogue written by Plato, following Socrates's thoughts on the nature of virtue. The dialogue is between Socrates and Meno, an influential Greek seeking knowledge on virtue. The dialogue focuses on the definition of virtue, examining various possibilities and examining whether virtue can be taught.

Throughout the conversation, Socrates offers a version of the Socratic Method, which involves him asking Meno a series of questions to see if he can come up with an answer from within himself rather than from outside sources. Meno struggles with the definition, dissatisfied with any answer he gives and ultimately concluding that he doesn't know anything about it.
