The Meno Paradox

The “Meno Paradox” is the argument that it does no good to seek for knowledge about something, because a) if we know what it is we don’t need to look, and b) if we don’t know what it is we won’t know how to recognize it when we’ve found it.

I wrote something about it for my philosophy students. If you are interested in logic and the philosophy of knowledge, feel free to check it out here.
