Irony, Socratic

Irony, Socratic, the name given to a practice of Socrates with pretentious people; “affecting ignorance and pretending to solicit information, he was in the habit of turning round upon the sciolist and confounding his presumption, both by the unlooked-for consequences he educed by his incessant questions and by the glaring contradictions the other was in the end landed by his admissions.”
