Defending first principles on the basis of endoxa is a matter of going through the difficulties (aporiai) on both sides of a subject until they are solved (Topics, 101a35). Suppose, then, that the topic to be dialectically investigated is: is being one and unchanging, or not? A competent dialectician will, first, follow out the consequences of each alternative to see what difficulties they face. Second, he will go through the difficulties he has uncovered to determine which can be solved and which cannot.
If A passes the examination, the philosopher can use his own knowledge of what a mathematical science must be like to determine whether A's mathematical knowledge is genuinely scientific. If he finds that it is, he knows that the undemonstrated mathematical first principles which A accepts are true. If, in particular, A accepts as such a principle that magnitudes are divisible without limit, the philosopher knows that it is true. When he uses his dialectical skill to draw out the consequences of this principle and of its negation, however, he sees difficulties and supporting arguments based on endoxa on both sides.
A competent dialectician will, first, follow out the consequences of each alternative to see what difficulties they face. Second, he will go through the difficulties he has uncovered to determine which can be solved and which cannot. As a result, he will be well placed to attack or defend either alternative in the strongest possible way. Aporematic, which is the part of philosophy that deals with such difficulties, is like dialectic in its methods, but differs from it in important respects. In a dialectical argument, for example, the opponent may refuse to accept a proposition that a philosopher would accept, since he can see too readily that he will be defeated if he does (Topics, 155bl0-16).
