Description - Plato's "Meno" in Focus by Plato
The book is designed to serve as a handy "starter-kit" for the study of this important work. In one volume it brings together a new English translation of the text, a selection of illuminating articles on themes in the dialogue published between 1965 and 1985 and and introduction setting the Meno in its historical context and opening up the key philosophical issues which the various articles discuss. All the articles are clearly focused on the text and have proven their value for undergraduates studying the Meno . The interests of readers with little or no knowledge of Greek are borne in mind throughout the volume. Jane Day's translation is particularly designed to be useful to such readers by preserving more consistency in its Greek terms than is found in the English translations, thus providing a more reliable reflection of the details in the original. There is also a glossary which briefly introduces some of the key terms and indicates how they are translated. Within the articles, too, Greek words and phrases at various points in the original printing are accompanied or replaced in this reprinting by a translation.
The Meno , is an excellent introduction to Plato and to philosophy.
