Publisher's Summary

A dialogue between Socrates and Meno probes the subject of ethics. Can goodness be taught? If it can, then we should be able to find teachers capable of instructing others about what is good and bad, right and wrong, or just and unjust.

Socrates and Meno are unable to identify teachers of ethics, and we are left wondering how such knowledge could be acquired. To answer that puzzle, Socrates questions one of Meno's servants in an attempt to show that we know fundamental ideas by recollecting them.

    "Why Incomplete?"

    I don't quite understand. This seems to be missing half of "The Meno" dialogue, yet specifically says "Unabridged."

    The entire latter half with Meno and Anytus isn't there! Is this an error in the program? Otherwise the audiobook is excellent, but this unexplained omission makes me distrust the publisher.

    "Incomplete."

    This recording only contains half of the dialogue. It leaves out the part where Socrates engages Anytus.

    "An excellent rendition."

    The Meno is one of the most fundamental Socratic dialogues. This audiobook is worth money.

    "This recording is only half of the dialogue"

    It is literally only half of the dialogue. It ends just before the exchange with Anytus begins.

    "This is a partial recording"

    The dialogue ends about two thirds of the way through with the appearance of Anytus. Do not waste your time downloading it.
