Becuse socrates believe that we could be taught to know the truth, most of his dialogues end with a conclusive view on the subject of the dialogue


Question asked by: googy2682

Asked on: 31 Jul 2008

It is actually the case that Socrates questioned whether such things as truth can be taught.

Indeed when it came to virtue, arete, related, he wondered indeeded whether it could be taught which was of course the Sophistic doctrine.

You can ask questions to approach nearer to a truth through Socratic questioning, but whether it can be itself taught is not clear.
