Socrates


Socrates
Text by Shimon Azulay 


        The great philosopher Socrates is considered as a father of the Western philosophy, in this article Shimon Azoulay analyses Socratic dialogue a form of literature in which two or more characters (in this case, one of them Socrates) discuss moral and philosophical issues. Socrates rarely reveals any opinions of his own as he brilliantly helps his interlocutors dissect their thoughts and motives in the dialogue.
