Representative of this broad interpretation is Reiss' approach, which underlies the type of conflict included in the armed dialogues. Friedlein, in an article, treated four Fonts dialog of the Italian Duecento. Friedlein comes to the conclusion that the main difference between medieval "in dialogue doctrinal discussions" and modern dialogues lies in the lack of problematizing the concept of truth. The original text of the chapter is in German.
