German term or phrase:Quote from Socrates
.. zeigen , daß weder die kritiklose Übernahme noch das erwähnte Eingeständnis in die Unwissenheit uns weiterbringht. Vielmehr können wir uns nur noch durch das Infragestellen des Herkömmlichen den Ziel des Wissens nähern.
Explanation: I think the asker wanted someone to find the exact quotation, and not to have it translated. It's always dangerous to retranslate Plato and other ancient authors...
Do you know which dialogue is the quotation taken from? I could not recognize it at first sight.
See the URL below for a complete official translation of all Plato's works.
