Ignorance, Irony and Knowledge in Plato shows that Socratic ignorance-knowing that you don't know-is central to Plato's philosophy, especially in his use of dialogue and his theory of knowledge. Plato's philosophical career can be understood as a progressive deepening of his appreciation of Socratic ignorance and its rich implications.
