B. First Cycle of Speeches (4:1–14:32)

It is difficult to label these exchanges. The designation “discussion” seems too scholarly, while the designation “debate” seems too structured. To label them “speech” seems too formal. The designation “dialogue” suggests short and interrupted exchanges, but the presentations in this section are rather long. Recognizing the absence of a precise term for these exchanges, for convenience we will use the designation “dialogue.”
