Plato's Meno : Dialogue as Education

The class this semester looks at the topic of Education theory. We’ll think about what it means to learn and the ways in which learning is accomplished through the interaction and mediation of others. We'll read some heavy hitters in the philosophy of education and philosophy of knowledge (epistemology). We'll write short analyses and longer researched essays. Throughout the semester our focus will be toward using what we read to inform what we write. Welcome!
