Mikhail Bakhtin

"It is quite possible to imagine and postulate a unified truth that requires a plurality of consciousnesses, one that cannot… be fitted into the bounds of a single consciousness, one that is, so to speak, by its very nature full of event potential and is born at a point of contact among various consciousnesses…."
Mikhail  Bakhtin

"…Truth is not born nor is it to be found inside the head of an individual person, it is born between people collectively searching for truth, in the process of their dialogic interaction."
Mikhail Bakhtin

"In rhetoric there are the unconditionally right and the unconditionally guilty; there is total victory and the annihilation of the opponent. In dialogue, annihilation of the opponent also annihilates the very dialogic sphere in which discourse lives… This sphere is very fragile and is easily destroyed…"
Mikhail Bakhtin
