Abstract

While Socrates and Meno are discussing the nature of knowledge through considering the square-root of two with one of Meno's slaves, their wives are discussing the nature of knowledge through considering the square-root of three with one of the slave girls, using a diagram based on Raphael's 'The School of Athens' being contemplated by Euclid.
