Dialectic is, basically, the attempt to determine truth by stating propositions, examining contradictory propositions, and then resolving conflicts between the propositions by combining them into a coherent result. It is thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. It is the practice of examining ideas and beliefs using reason and logic. It is often accomplished by question and answer as in the Socratic Method.
