comment Forcing people to read and understand code instead of using comments, function summaries and debuggers?
Your co-worker stance on comments and debuggers is a nice example of "Throwing out the baby with the bath water".

comment When should code favour optimization over readability and ease-of-use?
I strongly disagree with "If you decide to implement an algorithm, by all means implement the fastest one which suits your needs". What if this algorithm accounts for 1% of your total execution time? That means you will waste time for an absolute maximum of 1% speed improvement. Again, profile and decide if the improvement is worth the effort.

So you would say that one should optimize even if he doesn't have good reasons?
