The "Meno," one of the most widely read of the Platonic dialogues, is seen afresh in this original interpretation that explores the dialogue as a theatrical presentation. Just as Socrates's listeners would have questioned and examined their own thinking in response to the presentation, so, Klein shows, should modern readers become involved in the drama of the dialogue. Klein offers a line-by-line commentary on the text of the "Meno" itself that animates the characters and conversation and carefully probes each significant turn of the argument.
"A major addition to the literature on the "Meno" and necessary reading for every student of the dialogue."--Alexander Seasonske, "Philosophical Review"
"There exists no other commentary on "Meno" which is so thorough, sound, and enlightening."--"Choice"
Jacob Klein (1899-1978) was a student of Martin Heidegger and a tutor at St. John's College from 1937 until his death. His other works include "Plato's Trilogy: Theaetetus, the Sophist, and the Statesman," also published by the University of Chicago Press.
