This technique involves finding holes in their own theories and then patching them up. Socrates method has been considered a paradigm for philosophical inquiry because he was known for
asking questions that centered on understanding what things were in their most real state, not merely what he or others claimed then to be. He lived a life of philosophical inquiry. His methods were based on questioning.
