Abstract:

"This book is the first in English to set out the theoretical underpinnings of modern Socratic Dialogue as a self-directed learning process." "As a process of philosophising in groups, Socratic Dialogue is attracting growing interest because of its potential contribution to courses in citizenship, personal and social education, health, social work and community issues. Inspired by the philosophy of Socrates, German philosopher Leonard Nelson began to apply the Socratic Method to thinking and learning in the 1920s. By the 1950s Socratic Dialogue was being developed into a learning/teaching process, initially in Germany." "The book will be interest to all those working in education, especially teachers of philosophy, ethics, religious studies and mathematics. It will provide an authoritative guide to educators who want learners to develop enquiring minds."--BOOK JACKET.
