n abstract argumentation theory, preferred semantics has become one of the most popular approaches for determining the sets of arguments that can collectively be accepted. However, the description of preferred semantics, as it was originally stated by Dung, has a mainly technical and mathematical nature, making it difficult for lay persons to understand what the concept of preferred semantics is essentially about. In the current article, we aim to bridge the gap between mathematics and philosophy by providing a reformulation of (credulous) preferred semantics in terms of Socratic discussion. In order to do so, we first provide a (semi-)formal treatment of some of the concepts in Socratic dialogue.
