What is Wrong with Socrates?

The Philosophers' Magazine 41 (41):49-54 (2008)
Abstract
Socrates is anything but open-minded in his ideas about how life should be examined. In order to discover the truth, Socrates and his interlocutors need no information or fresh insight from outside themselves; they only need to find out which of their own ideas contradict one another. Socrates tests his prejudices against one another, but never thinks of throwing them all out, or trying a different methodology
