This book is radically new interpretation of Plato's Meno. Roslyn Weiss takes and defends the position that the Meno is a self-conscious analysis and assessment of the worth not of inquiry itself, but of moral inquiry. Her coherent reading of the Meno identifies serious problems for orthodox interpretations and will appeal to anyone interested in ancient philosophy and the classics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is blessed with a crystal clear introduction, presenting both Weiss's main assumptions and a careful synopsis of the contents ... clever and well produced. * Journal of Hellenic Studies *
[Weiss] plainly has an eye for passages that are given short shrift by others and constructs around them a novel and ingenious account of the Meno. At every point, she challenges received wisdom about the dialogue. If one disagrees with her, one will do so only after having been compelled to run a gauntlet of difficulties for more conventional interpretations. * Polis *
... this is an excellent book which must be read by everyone with a serious interest in Plato ... Weiss must be praised for her rigorous and careful reading, which sets a high standard for future commentaries on the Meno. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
