The Two Problems of Construction in Geometry in the Meno

Date: Friday 24 March, 2017

Time: 1100-1230

Place: G-160

Abstract: My aim in this talk is two-fold: firstly, to argue for the claim that  the two problems of geometry presented in the Meno seem to be  connected to each other, and secondly, to offer, in connection with  the first claim, a conjecture concerning the nature of the second  problem of geometry brought up in the dialogue at 86e. I shall offer,  in particular, a conjecture concerning how we should understand the  second problem of construction in geometry.
