Verbal communication between two or more people is termed as dialogue. It also depicts lines spoken by characters in a movie, play or a book. Freethinkers of the 20th century used dialogue as a dynamic context-driven tool to deliver meaning. Dialogues are a means to express thoughts, share ideas, discuss problems, and find solutions amicably in an increasingly self-absorbed world. When two parties agree to hold a dialogue, it is expected that both parties will listen to each other's points of view before dismissing their ideas.
There are seven types of dialogues - persuasion, discovery, inquiry, negotiation, deliberation, information-seeking, and combative. Persuasion is used in situations when there are differences of opinions, and one party is trying to persuade the other into buying in their point of view. The goal here is to resolve the conflict by making the other party to side with you. Discovery is utilized when one seeks an explanation for the way things are and floats theories that make sense to the mind. An inquiry is the type of dialogue used in the effort to find proof. The end goal is to find clues that prove your suspicion. Negotiation is used in a conflict situation when neither parties are in a mood to be persuaded but decides to strike a compromise instead. Deliberation is a dialogue used by a group that works collectively in finding a solution to a common problem. Information-seeking focuses on the exchange of information by asking questions and seeking answers from one another. Combative is an argumentative dialogue used by a party just to deliberately counter the opposition’s argument. The goal of a combative dialogue is to not let the other team win.

The Melian dialogue is misunderstood. Several years ago I had the misfortune of taking an International Relations course with a professor with a steadfast devotion to realist ideas and principles, which ideologically dominated the course. To drive her point home with regard to ethics in the international sphere, she assigned us to read a small abbreviated passage from the Melian dialogue, the entire point of the useless thought exercise was to get us to understand “the strong do what they will, the

An Analysis of Thucydides' Views on the Melian Dialogue The Melian Dialogue is a debate between Melian and Athenian representatives concerning the sovereignty of Melos. The debate did not really occur-the arguments given by each side were of Thucydides own creation. Thus it is reasonable to assume that we can tease out Thucydides' own beliefs. In this paper, I will first extract Thucydides views from the Melian Dialogue and then analyze whether or not these views are well founded. Thucydides
Melian Dialogue as interpreted through perspectives of Realism, Liberalism, and Constructivism Imagine Cleomedes, son of Lycomedes, general of the famed forces of the lustrous Athenian Empire, waiting for a trio of representatives to return from The Melian Dialogue. “Well?” he demands impatiently as they arrive, “What did they say?” As perspectives and opinions in the realm of political science are fluid and bound to change, he receives a variety of replies, for the representatives body he
Martin Buber’s “I and Thou” delivers a philosophy of private dialogue as it describes how personal dialogue can outline the character of reality. The book’s main theme is that life could also be outlined by the manner in which people tend to interact in dialogue with one another, with nature, and with God. According to Buber, a person might have two attitudes: I-Thou or I-It. I-Thou is a subject-to-subject relationship, whereas I-It is a subject-to-object relationship. Within the I-Thou relationship
Texting’s existence as a written medium causes it to loose much of the nuance found in spoken conversation. To that purpose, users of computer mediated communication have found ways of conveying emotion in written conversation. The first example is the emoticon. A metacommunicative symbol formed from punctuation symbols, it is used as a pragmatic marker in conversation, coloring the responses or requests it is affixed too, or, at times, as statement unto itself.

by his disciple Plato, and later published by him as dialogues... Very often these questions emphasized a specific philosophical question. The typical Socratic dialogue has 3 divisions: A. A question is posed. Socrates becomes excited and enthusiastic to find someone who claims to know something. B. Finds "minor flaws" in his companion's definition and slowly begins to unravel it, forcing his partner to admit ignorance (in one dialogue, his target ended up in tears). C. An agreement is
Profession Plato’s The Republic For all the time today’s students spend learning to write well, Plato is skeptical of those who spend their lives crafting words. In the tenth chapter of The Republic, Socrates condemns poets as imitators. In the dialogue that bears his name, Phaedrus wonders whether words in the constructed rhythms of speech or poetry will obscure Truth, the philosopher’s ultimate goal. Speech-writing is just the clever use of rhetorical device, poetry is faulty imitation, and both
