Why? But why? But why? …the Socratic method

Why? But why? But why?

“…the Socratic method: a form of argumentative dialogue that uses incisive questioning to stimulate critical thinking and draw out presuppositions. A more straightforward way to think about the Socratic method is to imagine a petulant child asking ‘why’ after every single explanation an adult offers – though Socrates, of course, was not a petulant child but a famously ugly adult male.”
