Summary The end of Plato's 'Clitophon' can be seen to raise something like the following challenge: How is one to acquire (learn) the knowledge Socrates has so persuasively shown to be essential to virtue and apparently absent from us all. 'Clitophon's Challenge' explores Plato's response to this challenge from the 'Apology', 'Laches', 'Euthyphro', and 'Protagoras' to the 'Meno', 'Phaedo', and 'Republic'.
Contents Clitophon's challenge -- Learning from others in the elenctic dialogues -- Meno's paradox & the theory of recollection -- The method of hypothesis : not a mere second best -- The method of hypothesis : a preliminary sketch -- The method of hypothesis : Socrates at work in the Meno -- The method of hypothesis : Socrates at work in the Phaedo -- The method of hypothesis : Socrates at work in the Republic -- Dialectic in the Republic.
