Society for the Study of Islamicate Dialectical Disputation (SSIDD)

Exploring the theory, practice, and scholarly contexts of jadal, munāẓara, and the ādāb al-baḥth

“And this science is of the most exalted in rank and greatest in importance, for it is the path to knowledge of evidentiary justification and discerning the truth from what is absurd; and were it not for the validation of theses in dialectic, no proof might be furnished, nor method made clear, nor the sound be known from the unsound, nor the crooked from the straight.” --Abū al-Walīd al-Bājī (d. 474/1081)

Welcome to,
a gateway to the SSIDD Forum,
and a posting venue for sources, materials, people, projects, and expositions
