Socrates: The Midwife

Socrates: The Midwife
by Scott Bradley

Socrates made it a point to never tell anyone the Truth since he did not know it himself. Likewise, he never told anyone that they did not know it. Rather, he simply asked questions which enabled them to realize their own ignorance of the Truth. The Socratic method has thus been called a kind of midwifery: Each one gives birth to his or her own understanding.
