Debate as a Methodology of Knowledge Production in Pre-Modern India (2016)


The article seeks to focus on taking stock of what is already available by way of methodological prescriptions about knowledge production in pre-modern India. This is what seems to have come in the way of integrating contributions from various disciplines. A shift of focus from the site of knowledge production to the site of organisation of thoughts is necessary for it. One have to search for it in the philosophical literature. There is the need for a compiler to organise the scattered material for somebody with the objective to ascertain the principles of organisation of knowledge thereof. The article argues thatin order to accomplish this task there is a need to go through various academic protocols and institute academic bureaucracy by setting different methodologies in a systematic manner.
