About this video

The two principal teaching methods are Socratic dialogue and direct teaching. Two central issues of education are the centrality of the student in the learning process and his or her epistemological responsibility. Direct teaching ignores these issues, while the goal of Socratic process is student ownership of the pedagogical process. War is the denial of learning; peace is achieved through teaching and dialogue. The phases of a student's cognitive development are duality, multiplicity, relativism, and commitment.
