Can Meno: Can One Learn New Things?

Satisfactory Essays
Throughout the dialogue Meno the following question is brought up a number times: can one learn new things? Although the answer is never truly reached and may never be, I side with Socrates in stating that one does not truly ever learn new things, instead, using the Socratic idea of innatism, the idea that the mind is born with knowledge and is simply recalling former experiences when “learning” new things, I attempt to discuss why this may be possible.
