Debate is training in logical analysis, which is a central part of traditional monastic education. The point of developing clear logic is not simply to win intellectual arguments, but to become skilled in meditative analysis of the Buddha’s teachings. Traditionally, a monk or nun hears teachings on topics of debate; then they read the texts, memorizes the definitions and divisions and then, on their own, thinks about the meaning of what he is studying and meditates (analytical meditation) on its implications. After this preparation, they are able to debate the topic with others, and to help clarify their own or other’s wrong view.
