The sastra has concepts called "poorva paksha" and "uttara paksha". When one raises a point (poorva paksha) the other one criticizes it (uttara paksha). Then the debate starts. Each one tries to support his point of view by getting various references. The meaning of the word tarka also is specific, in that it does not imply a pure logical analysis but a complex activity of discourse guided by strict definitions and goals so as to have. This concept is referred in Bhagawad Gita as "vAdaH pravadatAmasmi" (vibhooti yOga).
