Is dialogue or debate a better medium for solving conflict; what is your proof
There are beneficial qualities to both mediums, but I am currently holding onto the opinion that dialogue (when properly defined) is the pinnacle in conflict resolution. Without first creating the forum for dialogue, there is no safe place for oppositional viewpoints to be discussed. In my own words, dialogue is the pursuit of truth through linguistically-exchanged ideas. Naturally, more than one person is required in order for the process to potentially discover something true (about the self or the self-society relationship). Finally I believe the process must be democratic, even at the expense of extending timelines--for projects which initially thought them necessary.
