Group Work for Plato's Meno

Break up into small groups. Then discuss the following. Delegate one or more members of your group to prepare an oral or written summary of your group's discussion. If you were not present in class for this exercise, you may complete it (in less than 1 page) as a typed assignment.

1. Name 3 excellent people.  (Your group does not have to be in unanimous agreement.)

2. What is it that makes them excellent?

3. Can excellence such as theirs be taught?  If not, why not?  If so, how so, and who are the teachers?
