    Over the course of this semester in Honors Dialogue, I have strengthened my critical thinking skills, challenged my underlying assumptions and beliefs, and learned how to develop shared meaning through respectful inquiry in a group setting. When I initially signed up for this class, I did not understand the type of communication that is dialogue. I knew the premise of the class was that each week a classmate would come to class with a specific topic that we would be expected to think about, create our own statement or position on, and then use the class time to debate. I have learned, however, that dialogue is so much more! As Socrates used this type of conversation to search for the truth, we followed suit and used dialogue to understand the truth behind each classmate’s position on a topic. That being said, we used dialogue, as well as the Ladder of Inference, to understand why people come to the conclusions they do rather than try to collectively come to a conclusion as a group through debate.

Therefore, I have learned that dialogue is a great tool for communication and reasoning- unless you use it too much in ancient Greece, as you may become sentenced to death like Socrates! Using dialogue as a tool for communication and reasoning, furthermore, consists of continuously…

  • Philosophical Dialogue Analysis

    For the philosophical dialogue I asked the philosophical question: “Is it worse to fail at something or never attempt it in the first place?” I asked this question mainly because in science, scientists have to take risks and often fail many times before they succeed.
