On Freedom (1958), Context: The true Enlightenment thinker, the true rationalist, never wants to talk anyone into anything.

Above all, he values the intellectual independence of others too highly to want to convince them in important matters. He would much rather invite contradiction, preferably in the form of rational and disciplined criticism. He seeks not to convince but to arouse — to challenge others to form free opinions.
