Doubling the Square in Plato's Meno: A Test with a Six-Year-Old
Duke, Elizabeth; Duke, Barbara
Didaskalos, 5, 1, 116-122, 75
The author re-enacted the "Meno's" discussion between Plato and the slave about doubling the size of the square, and found that a six-year-old's answers paralleled those of the slave; neither had formal knowledge of geometry. Plato stated that learning is recollection of knowledge held before birth. (CHK)
