The Spirit of (Genuine) Disputation

[Genuine disputation] has as its sole purpose the clarification of objective substance. Clarifying speech in particular is animated by respect for the adversary. He is respected as a fellow seeker after truth. Disputing, conducting genuine debate, means expressly granting the other the right both to understand what we mean and critically to examine our statements for their truth or falsehood.
