[87c] is it taught? Or is not this fact plain to everyone—that the one and only thing taught to men is knowledge?

Meno
I agree to that.

Socrates
Then if virtue is a kind of knowledge, clearly it must be taught?

Meno
Certainly.

Socrates
So you see we have made short work of this question—if virtue belongs to one class of things it is teachable, and if to another, it is not.

Meno
To be sure.

Socrates
The next question, it would seem, that we have to consider is whether virtue is knowledge, or of another kind than knowledge.
