Greek philosopher Plato expressed his philosophy in numerous "dialogues." In the earlier of these dialogues Plato develops the ideas of his teacher Socrates through portrayals of Socrates' discussions with his contemporaries, discussions that proceed by questions and answers. Socrates is usually represented as asking in one way or another "What is X?" His respondent's answer is then subjected to a searching analysis that generates still more and better answers.
