The paper offers an analysis of the forms of the Socratic paradoxes as well as their importance for the epistemological inquiries. In the author's view there are various kinds of paradoxes. A special attention is paid to the Meno paradox from Plato's 'Meno'. In dealing with paradoxes there are three possible strategies: their critical overcoming, their demythologization or their acceptation. The author gives the descriptions of all of these strategies, reminding us that each of them put the stress on a specific epistemological problem, whereby they are completing each other.
