2529 : Menon's Dilemma

I was reading a book called Walking by Erling Kagge....and up comes along this passage.

Socrates wondered about something similar, "But how will you look for something when you don't in the least know what it is?". Philosophers have pondered on this dilemma - or Menon's Dilemma, named after the sophist Menon, who asked Socrates this question - for 2400 years.
