Debate was the life blood of Indian thought. It unleashed the creative insights of theologians and sharpened the logical acumen of philosophers. In Indian techniques and rules of debate were the forerunners of logic. They informed not only the conduct of live debates but also the style and argument of writing. What PHYLLIS GRANOFF says about Sri Harsa’s Khandanakhankakhadya and the commentaries on the Vedanta Sutra is applicable to much of the philosophical and theological writings of the Indian middle ages: they "maintain their strong links with the tradition of oral debate," and appear to be "debate(s) set in writing".Printed Pages: 349.
