Christian Principles for Socratic Discussion

Jacob Allee, Classical School of Wichita

In this workshop, we will examine the purpose of Socratic discussion and the methods to employ in order to get the most out of any given Socratic discussion. We will also discuss the specific way our Christian faith should impact our use of the Socratic method and principles we should follow when employing it. Additionally, everyone will participate in a brief Socratic discussion after reading a quick text from Plato. We will employ and draw attention to the methods and principles discussed earlier in the workshop so that everyone can benefit from seeing these methods and principles in action.
