Socrates and Meno have concluded that if virtue is knowledge, then it can be taught. It seems as though virtue is knowledge. And yet, Socrates raises doubts about the hypothesis. Why? (89d-e)
Enter Anytus, the man who is hosting Meno at his house. Why is Anytus’ father? What does Socrates tell us about him? (90a-b)
Socrates fills Anytus in on the conversation he and Meno have been having. He asks Anytus to whom they should send Meno to, in order to learn what virtue is. What does Socrates suggest and what is Anytus’ reaction? (90c-92c)
Has Anytus ever met a sophist? How does he claim to know about them? (92b-c)
Where, according to Anytus, do Athenians learn virtue? ( 92e-93a)
According to Socrates, what are he and Meno trying to figure out (whether good men…)? (93b)
What did Themistocles try to teach his son? Why didn’t it work? (93c-e)
What couldn’t Pericles (a man if magnificent wisdom) teach his sons and why? (94b-e)
Why does Socrates say that Anytus is angry? (94e-95b)

We pick up at 24c with Socrates declaring that he will defend himself against Meletus (one of his accusers, a poet) examine the accusations against him point by point.
What does Socrates accuse Meletus of and how does he show this through his cross-examination of Meletus? (note how Socrates goes about asking Meletus questions and what Meletus’ answers tell us about Meletus) (24c-25a)
Socrates goes on to argue that Meletus’ claim makes little sense because it requires a certain kind of expertise to improve living beings (horses and children). Also, he goes on, he would have no motive for corrupting his fellow citizens.
Why not? (25c-26a)
Next, Socrates turns to the second charge: that he doesn’t believe in the gods of the city. Again, he cross examines Meletus, asking whether he thinks Socrates believes in some gods or no gods at all? Again, Meletus’ answer is telling: it seeks to put Socrates in the worst light possible, and it is not difficult for Socrates to show that his accuser is absurd and doesn’t know what he is talking about. After cross examining Meletus (essentially putting him on trial in front of 500 citizens), Socrates addresses the jury explaining what’s really going on and why he’s on trial. In response to the contention that Socrates should be ashamed for living life in such a way that he is now facing death as a result of it, he explains why that isn’t so.
What does he say and how does he respond to the proposition that he could be let off if he just stopped philosophizing? (28a-30b)
Why would Athens be harming itself more than Socrates if it were to put Socrates to death? (30c-31c) [very important passage—make sure you get it!]
What is Socrates’ divine sign and what does it tell him? (31d)
How is Socrates’ defense different than most defenses? (34c-end)
What is the verdict? What is the sentence? (35d-end)
