It is valuable to have productive conversations with other humans, even if – especially if – you do not see eye-to-eye.  Discussing opposing opinions may cause your perspective on a topic to evolve. It can also help to strengthen your arguments for why you disagree. The Socratic Method is a teaching strategy used in law schools that is based on the asking and answering of questions in order to spark critical thinking and to examine ideas and underlying presumptions.  A good lawyer must understand all arguments for and against an issue in order to effectively advocate.
