In a series of interviews, Luis Figueroa interviews Michael Strong, author of the bestseller The Habit of Thought. This book describes the theory, vision, and basis of Socratic practice, a novel and increasingly widespread approach to classroom instruction. In chapter two, "Intellectual Integrity: A Non-Cognitive Interpretation of Genius," Strong explains that intellectual integrity is a commitment to balance evidence from all sides of an issue. He defines genius as a willingness to doubt one's own assumptions and to take into account evidence that opposes favored ideas. The role of Socratic practice is to encourage intellectual integrity and to help students overcome its many challenges.
