What to believe

In a lesson, I read about "argumentative" :


An 'argumentative' person is someone who looks for an argument or a dispute, or has a tendency to argue.... Note that this adjective is totally unrelated to the idea of debate or 'argument' in the sense of stating an opinion for or against a given topic.


and few lines below :


(an) argumentative (person): (une personne) qui aime les débats


I find this contradictory, don't you ?
