  • Zhong Jianwei Ningbo University (China)

Abstract

Confucius and Socrates, two cultural icons of the East and West, both declared they did “not know,” which, however, held different concepts for them. First, I will critically examine their dialogue teaching practices to analyze the implications of “knowing" and “not knowing.” Second, I will explore the different images of knowledge and visions of pedagogy each held.
