Land of the Flat Water
bringing a person's latent ideas into clear consciousness.
From the Greek, maieuesthai, of or pertaining to a midwife.
Socrates compared himself to a philosophical midwife, who
through his questioning could enduce the delivery of
superior understanding in the other person's mind, because
the knowledge was already present in that person's mind.
