AUTHOR

Klein, Jacob

SUMMARY

TheMeno, one of the most widely read of the Platonic dialogues, is seen afresh in this original interpretation that explores the dialogue as a theatrical presentation. Just as Socrates's listeners would have questioned and examined their own thinking in response to the presentation, so, Klein shows, should modern readers become involved in the drama of the dialogue. Klein offers a line-by-line commentary on the text of theMenoitself that animates the characters and conversation and carefully probes each significant turn of the argument. "A major addition to the literature on theMenoand necessary reading for every student of the dialogue."--Alexander Seasonske,Philosophical Review "There exists no other commentary onMenowhich is so thorough, sound, and enlightening."--Choice Jacob Klein (1899-1978) was a student of Martin Heidegger and a tutor at St. John's College from 1937 until his death. His other works includePlato's Trilogy: Theaetetus, the Sophist, and the Statesman, also published by the University of Chicago Press.Klein, Jacob is the author of 'Commentary on Plato's Meno' with ISBN 9780226439594 and ISBN 0226439593.
