When you respond to a topic in the Forums, you become an official NSTI “Disputator.”

In the 13th century when Thomas Aquinas lived, academic understanding was acquired in the universities through disputatio – a Latin word meaning dispute or debate. The student would learn how converse and defend both true and false opinions in order to grow in knowledge and skill.
