Socrates (470 – 399) was a Greek philosopher, credited as the first moral philosopher of Western ethical thought and as a founder of Western Philosophy. Socrates is also credited as the inventor of the Socratic Method which is a method of eliminating hypothesis by identifying and eliminating those that lead to contradictions.
