PDF Edition. Plato’s theory of recollection has received much attention from scholars. Some of the most controversial questions being discussed in journals include these: • What is the relationship between the middle section of the Meno, which includes the explication of the theory of recollection and the slave-boy episode, and the beginning and concluding sections, which are concerned respectively with the definition of virtue and the question of whether or not virtue can be taught? • Should recollection be regarded as a positive Platonic doctrine or as an ironic doctrine that is not meant to be taken seriously? • If recollection is meant to be taken seriously, what interpretation should be given to it? In this thesis, I will give an interpretation of recollection as a positive Platonic doctrine and provide a defense against its critics.
