Chapter Summary

Despite the differences between moral and dialectical discussions, dialogues received recognition. This chapter discusses the definition of philosophical dialogues, and the philosophical dialogues in the early and late Middle Ages. The active participation of the student and the discussion of various theses are common in the philosophical dialogues. Augustine and Boethius seem to have indeed influenced the medieval philosophical dialogues with their way of reasoning, but not in the formal design. In the philosophical dialogues, the role of the student is much more active, because they are involved in the argument. The philosophical dialogues of the late Middle Ages can be divided into two groups, which differ by the issues discussed, the style and type of argument. The most important is the formative philosophical dialogues for the relationship of the interlocutors that discuss partnership and fight their disputes amicably. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Augustine; Boethius; Middle Ages; philosophical dialogues
