"agree to disagree"

Posted by Clare on April 23, 2000

what's the meaning of this? Does it mean,

we've defined our terms, now we can start discussing the matter at hand,

or

I've heard your view, you've heard mine, we don't agree, so we'll let it drop and go on to other things?

I'd appreciate getting a private email about this since I'm not a regular frequenter of this list (though I might become one; it looks fascinating!)

Thanks.
