The Prize in Disputation

Augustine, Against the Academicians 1.3.8 (Licentius speaking; tr. Mary Patricia Garvey):
I think that is of no little advantage in philosophy when a victory is considered of little account by the disputant in comparison with finding out what is right and true.

non parvum in philosophia profectum puto, inquit, cum in comparatione recti verique inveniendi contemnitur a disputante victoria.
