Meno
I should say that is the next thing we have to consider.

Socrates
Well now, surely we call virtue a good thing, do we not, and our hypothesis stands, that it is good?

Meno
Certainly we do.

Socrates
Then if there is some good apart and separable from knowledge, it may be that virtue is not a kind of knowledge; but if there is nothing good that is not embraced by knowledge, our suspicion that virtue is a kind of knowledge would be well founded.

Meno
Quite so.

Socrates
Now it is by virtue that we are good?

Meno
Yes.
