Abstract

Socrates famously proclaimed that “the unexamined life is not worth living,” a decree that is now currently reflected in the popularity of talk therapies. In this thesis, I examine the relationship between Socratic philosophy and Cognitive-behavior therapy. I argue that, in light of numerous conceptual and historical connections, Socratic philosophy serves as a foundation for the development CBT. I then refute the argument posited by Edward Erwin in his book Behavior Therapy Scientific, Philosophical, and Moral Foundations which rejects philosophy as a foundation for behavior therapies. I conclude with a reflection upon my prior analysis and offer suggestions for how inquiry into the foundations of behavior therapies should be carried out in order to provide the greatest benefit.
