Source: INSA Digital Repository: Caraka’s Approach to Knowledge

Discussion or Debate was an important part of Ayurveda, as it promotes the advancement of knowledge, etc. (Cf. Charaka Samhita, Vimana 8.27- 65).—The seamlessness between medicine and philosophy in Charaka Samhita is again evident when his detailed discussion on the logical parameters of debate appears in a chapter on ‘roga-bhisag-jitiyam’ (features of therapeutics). [...] Caraka advised physicians to confine their discussion among professional peers and to Ayurvedic topics. He was a strong advocate of sambhasha (discussion) as it ‘promotes advancement of knowledge, fluent speech; enhances fame; removes doubt; creates confidence, and uncovers new ideas’.
