Summary/Abstract: The article focusses on two aspects of the Socratic method of ethical knowledge i.e.: the logico-epistemological aspect (A) and the ethico-educational aspect (B). The initial prerequisite is the thesis on the original duality of the moral philosophy of Socrates with a view to its subject orientation and cognitive approach which premises a relevant interpretative duality i.e.: prorational and proexistential duality. As regards A/ the issue of the heuristic value of the method is discussed. B/ is interpreted in the light of the discussion on the correlation between the monologic and dialogic aspects of the Socratic discourse.
