Ask Meno Questions • Discussion 4

Re: Facebook DiscussionOguzhan Kosar

The questions raised under the heading of “Foundations of Mathematics” are generally considered to fall under the “Philosophy of Mathematics”, in particular, critical reflection on the possibility of mathematical knowledge and how we come to acquire it, or imagine we do.  Now that’s a question of epistemology, or how we may be able to learn anything at all, and Plato’s dialogue Meno is one of the earliest and finest examinations of that question.
