II R. M. Hare Philosophische Entdeckungen in Grewendorf/Meggle(Hg) Linguistik und Philosophie, Frankfurt (Athenäum) 1974/1995

Grewendorf II
Dialectic/Hare: dialectic is like dancing, a typical cooperative activity. It consists in testing the proposed representation of the use of a word by using the word as it is, and then sees what happens.

Most popular example (destructive): the definition of "correct" as "to tell the truth and return the lent": Refutation by the example of the madman, to whom the weapons cannot be returned. (Reductio ad absurdum). (Plato, State).
Narrow analogy of discovering with remembering something.

Hare: the philosopher does not create his own objects of investigation, nor does he receive them as mere empirical data. Nevertheless, the assertion that there are such operations as negation etc. is not more mysterious than the assertion that there is a certain dance.
But that is mysterious enough.
