In order to counterattack possible unconscious biases that the different parties that take part in the dialogue may have, users with the role of Socrates’s Disciple, will be replying to specific ideas with questions, utilizing the Socratic Method. This will allow implied assumptions to be shown, and to be revised, in order to expose possible underlying contradictions.
Any user can become a Scorates’s Disciple, but once they have this role, they may not partake in the Dialogue itself as a participating user, and can’t support any of the different views.
Their sole duty is to shed light on the implied assumptions and expose them.
