Ancient Greek Philosopher
Greek Philosopher Socrates

Socrates (circa 470 to 399 B.C.), one of the greatest figures of the 4th century B.C. spent his life questioning the standards of his fellow Athenians.

The Socratic Method named after the Classical Greek philosopher Socrates, is a form of philosophical inquiry in which the questioner explores the implications of others’ positions, to stimulate rational thinking and illuminate ideas. This dialectical method often involves an oppositional discussion in which the defense of one point of view is pitted against another; one participant may lead another to contradict himself in some way, strengthening the inquirer’s own point.
