Plato, the philosopher of the ancient Greece, used the term «maieutics» to describe a special method to discover the truth. In this dialogue-based method applied by Socrates, Plato’s teacher, a form of inquiry and debate between individuals is used to stimulate critical thinking and questioning, to «give birth» to insight, and to differentiate between true and fake ideas. In his terminology, Socrates also draws some parallels between this method and an obstetric activity.
