Socrates was a Greek Philosopher who is seen by many as the founder of Western Philosophy. Socrates founded the "Socratic Method" which allows students to learn through the active process of asking questions and becoming part of group discussions as opposed to passively listening to a lecturer. Socrates' emphasis on self-knowledge revolutionized education and philosophy forever.

Socrates Quotes

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.

One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.

I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
