Abstract: 

This Thesis examines the problem of philosophic education. It outlines a problem of philosophic education that comes out of ancient and modern scholarship concerning the initiation into philosophy. Essentially every philosopher and scholar who has looked at it is unable to describe the conditions of what a philosophic education is. The problem gets originally illuminated out of the Laws and Republic of Plato. The final chapter of the thesis looks at the dialogue Gorgias and adopts a hermeneutical interpretation of the text to see what the conditions might be for a philosophic education to be possible.
