Arguments often involve emotional responses and can become personal. Debates aim to be objective and focus on rational discourse rather than emotional expression.

The primary goal of an argument is usually to prove one's point or convince the other party. The objective of a debate is to discuss different sides of an issue and may not necessarily seek a definitive conclusion.

Arguments may not always lead to a resolution or mutual understanding. Debates, through their structured nature, often conclude with a summary or evaluation of the points discussed.
