The greatest concern regarding Socrates' work lies in the fact that he wrote virtually nothing down. All records of his teachings lay within the writings of his pupils and transcriptions of his trial.
Aside from directly influencing students such as Plato and Xenophon, Socrates' methods are still used in today's classrooms and intellectual circles around the world.
The Socratic Method and self-reflection are key tools for students and teachers of all levels.
(c 470 BC - 399 BC)
Considered father of Western Philosophy
Controversial teacher of Plato (among many others)
Sentenced to death for corrupting the young
Had three main teachings:
The first step in gaining knowledge is to admit you know nothing
The only way to be a good person is to know yourself
The path to truth can only be found through questioning
Who was Socrates?
Steve Jobs once said that he was willing to trade everything he'd done technologically for the chance to spend an afternoon with Socrates.
It requires a low teacher-student ratio to be effective
Teacher must be skilled in the questioning method
Students must be willing
Strictly theoretical/no hands-on experience gained

The first Perennialist
Believed in creating thinkers and learners would lead to better society
Developed a system of questioning that is still in use today
Treat each question as an answer, seek to find the source of the question/confusion
