This method is very important beacuse all the science is based on questions and answers. so simple. imagine that when socrates and platon and aristoteles was talking about science and dsicover sciense some others people were leaving on Trees :)

Hi.Socrates method's name is "meeftiki" (obstetrics) and means like the baby is talking out of the mother so socrates was taking out the answers from the people he was talking. all started beacuse of pythias speach. he went to delphi oracle and he asked "pythia" the next. "who is the most clever people in the world" and pythias answer was. "YOU SOCRATES" sinse then he tried to proov that he isn't the most clever person on the world and he started asking questions to all about different things and then he understood that noone knew anything ;).

hope that helps.

Socratic method is a way of asking questions that takes its name from the Ancient Greek philosopher Socrates. Socrates would constantly ask questions and inquire in order to explore his philosophies. Often Socrates' questions where rhetorical; while he knew the answer to them he asked questions of other men to reveal their ignorance. Socratic method is important to the field of science because science is about asking questions. Socratic method is a way of finding a hypothesis by the process of elimination.
