Post below what your team learned about Socrates from your brief reading. What did you find interesting?

He lived such a simple life. He never published anything, so we've learned about him through other people. We think Socrates slept on the couch for much of his marriage. :) How did he make a living?

Tina & Jill - Socrates was a Greek philosopher known best through Plato, one of his students. He is known for his contribution to the field of ethics, Socratic irony, and Socratic method.Socratic method is a commonly used tool in which a series of questions are asked not only to elicit answers,s but to encourage fundamental insights into issues. Socrates remains mysterious and much is still unknown about him.

Sophists were smooth talkers rather than deep thinkers. In contrast, Socrates listened to what other people were saying and challenged others ideas. Today, this way of asking questions to dig deeper into an idea is known as the "Socratic Method".
Socrates, Plato and Aristotle are famous today because of the questions they asked and the ideas they had more than 20,000 years ago.
