Plato was not the only one who wrote about Socrates. And this gives a rather different view. . . .
Not in Socratic method. That's one thing that is unquestionably constant. But while Xenophon's Socrates does talk about virtue, he talks differently than Plato's. Also, he deals at a much more practical level. For instance, in one discussion, he talks a man into providing for his crowds of female relatives by putting them to work making textiles. Indeed, the last of the documents is nothing except talking about how to manage an estate.
