SOCRATIC DIALOGUE on Sunday 17th November 2013
 
 
Question:  Under what circumstances is disagreement fruitful?
 
Facilitator:     Angella Hodgson
 
Venue: 58 Oxford Gardens, London, W10 5UN

Coffee is at 9.30 to ensure a prompt start at 10.00
Socratic Method
The Socratic method encourages participants to reflect and think independently and critically. 
Socratic Dialogue is practised in small groups with the help of a facilitator, so that self-
confidence in ones own thinking is enhanced and the search for answers to a particular question 
is undertaken in common. No prior philosophical training is needed, provided participants are 
motivated to try the method, are willing to contribute their thoughts sincerely, and to listen to 
those of others. The questions, drawn from ethics, politics, epistemology, mathematics and 
psychology, are of a general and fundamental nature. The endeavour of the group is to reach 
consensus, not as an aim in itself, but as a means to deepen the investigation.
 
 
Session cost 10 to be paid on enrolment, cheques to be sent to the address above.
 
Please note that:
         The enrolment form and your cheque should be received by the
