Aryanists are expected to be able to articulately represent the arguments of this ideology and compare it to any other given ideology, including in debate against hostile critics. To hone skills towards this end, Aryanists are encouraged to debate each other and to proactively seek out opposing presentations (historical as well as contemporary) and offer Aryan rebuttals. Through developing familiarity with each other’s work, Aryanists are expected to establish specialist expertize in different areas of the subject matter and be able to mutually defer ongoing discourse with trust and respect.

Hippocratic Oath A 12th-century Byzantine manuscript of the Oath The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine honestly. It is widely believed to have been written by Hippocrates, often regarded as the father of western medicine, or by one of his students.[1] The oath is written in Ionic Greek (late 5th century BC),[2] and is usually included in the Hippocratic Corpus. Classical scholar Ludwig Edelstein proposed that the oath was written by Pythagoreans, a theory that has been questioned because of the lack of evidence for a school of Pythagorean medicine.[3] Of historic and traditional value, the oath is considered a rite of passage for practitioners of medicine in many countries, although nowadays the modernized version of the text varies among them. The Hippocratic Oath (horkos) is one of the most widely known of Greek medical texts. Original[edit]
