Philosophy discussion questions 1. What is the Socratic method? What is it designed to do? Try to illustrate this method with a concrete example.The Socratic Method is a method used in class instruction designed after the teachings of Socrates where the teacher asks the student a series of questions designed to make the student use logic, reasoning, and critical thinking skills in order to come to the right answer. Knowledge is gained through questioning what is and determining how things should be. The Socrates method is designed to enable the student to develop a deeper understanding of the topic at hand and to enable the student to find answers to difficult questions (Harrington, 2010). An example of the Socrates method would be in a law class a professor would ask the student why a particular court ruling was made instead of having them memorize the facts. For example
