aka Socrates and Sophistry 002
Socrates’ manner of philosophy was one of hypotheses. He is thought to be one of the forefathers of this type of thinking. He employed a method of negative hypothesis elimination, whereby a series of questions could be asked, and in this way eliminate incorrect suppositions, and those that are contradictory.
In the Socrates and Sophistry series we will continue to look at either widely disseminated misinformation that is carried on through generations of texts and teachers, or ask questions where there is no accepted and agreed upon answer, or simply ask questions where the answer may be quite clear, just out of reach of us mortals with Google. Again we encourage anybody, of any persuasion, qualification, or inclination to contribute. There can be no wrong answers, only crowdsourced ideas.
