It's not possible for a user to delete his own discussion?

I only see the configuration to allow for deleting comments. But what about the discussion?

    No, once a discussion has been published , it can be edited depending on permissions. Only the admin or moderators can delete it if they have permissions.

    Look at roles and permissions in the dashboard..

    I understand. The permissions in the dashboard are global, meaning that allowing deletion gives everyone permission not only the author.

    I don't understand the logic behind not allowing the author to delete his own discussion.

    I am sure there is a logical reason.. I don't know what it is , I can come up with several reasons, because most other forum software is the same in that regard.
