The Teachings of Socrates

What differentiated Socrates from other intellects was not the knowledge but rather the “method” used in his pursuit of the truth.

He contended that the right way for someone to reach a solution to a problem is to approach it “without bias”, to deal with it as if knowing nothing about it at all. Unfortunately people tend to view things differently and fall victim to their own cognizance, which they also assume is “accurate”.
