Why do we debate? To prove the superiority of our own ideas, or to improve our own understanding of the world.

If it is the former, then we only seek the weaknesses in the other’s argument; the point is to win.

If it is the latter, then we truly listen, and appreciate where the other is coming from; the point is to be wise.
