Protagoras and Meno is a wonderful translation of one of the masters of philosophical writing, Plato, delving into the fascinating question of whether or not being good is inherent or teachable.

With graceful humor that is still as accessible in today’s Internet age as it was in Plato’s day, readers are treated to imagined debates between Socrates and Protogoras, a well-respected Sophist and all around nice guy which results in a quick-witted yet friendly battle.

The debate between Socrates and the rich, arrogant Meno puts forth the tantalizing idea that all learning comes from the collective undying soul of humanity.

Protagoras and Meno is a classic masterpiece and will be enjoyed by anyone who admires the cunning manipulation of language and intellect.
