"If I were pressed for a one-word opposite of the Socratic method, a strong candidate would be Twitter,"

How didactic.




Is there one place in today's world where the Socratic method is still practiced?
University ? Certainly not.

Education for one.
For over 25 years as I was teaching University physics, the Socratic method was an important tool in my educational tool kit.

Conversations for two.
Using questions to probe your interlocutors beliefs and stances is still a tried and true method.


I have never specifically studied Socratic method nor Twitter, so I would not know.
