The Socratic Method

From: Jon A.
Sent on: Thursday, November 1, 2012 11:24 AM
An UN-gentle reminder that we are participants at the Socrates Cafe, not the Declarations of Truth Cafe.

Declarative statements are always welcome; we can't be Socratic if no one makes a declaration! However, we no doubt see dueling declarations of truth, including sarcasm and ridicule on a nearly daily basis in our everyday lives. 

We won't survive as a group if we fall into that pattern at Socrates Cafe.

I encourage everyone to use the Socratic Method in their efforts to challenge one another's assertions at our meetings (not to mention in our efforts to better understand one another). 

I will try in future to remind us of this. Otherwise, it'll be no fun at all.

Jon
