    One the one hand, isn’t this a minor variant of the Socratic method? One the other hand, this sort of thing reminds me of a classical debate within the left relative to the dialectical nature of domination and cooperation. In any situation where domination is an issue, the dominated must co-operate with dominators or, less strongly perhaps, at least acquiesce to their own domination. Whether coopetition or domination-cooperation, these phenomena strike me as the heart of relational epistemological perspectives.
