Intellectual Integrity

Postby Cittasanto » Sun Jan 27, 2013 11:46 pm



He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

If Cittisanto you are addressing me I think Nana's point distinguishing between provisional path structures on the one hand, and outcomes on the other is vital in terms of intellectual integrity when discussing dharma/dhamma.
