ABSTRACT
Chapter Two of the book "Politically Incorrect Dialogues," by Howard Kainz is presented. It discusses the use of dialogues by philosopher Aristotle which landed in oblivion, offering people some proof that they were minor works. It highlights the attempt of philosopher Plato to dramatize both the ideas and life of philosopher Socrates, while introducing few of his own ideas into the lines of Socrates.
