Socratic Practice as Disruptive Technology

My TEDx UFM talk is out, “Socratic Practice as Disruptive Technology.”

I refer early on to Malcolm Gladwell’s Outlier’s regarding the Korean Airline crash, then to Sophocles’ Antigone, Socrates,  Julian Jaynes’ The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind (which I mistakenly refer to as “The Creation of Consciousness . . .”), and the 1950s Harvard study that I refer to is Solomon Asch’s work on social conformity, in which subjects are asked to say which of the lines in Exhibit 2 below are most similar in length to the line in Exhibit 1:

A great video of a 1950s Asch experiment, including close-ups of the subject’s faces, is available here.

I also refer to Universidad Francisco Marroquin (UFM) and its founder, Muso (Manuel Ayau), and current president, Giancarlo Ibarguen.
