    The Shift From Agonistic to Non-Agonistic Debate in Early Nyāya.Hugh Nicholson - 2010 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 38 (1):75-95.
    This article examines the emergence of the Nyāya distinction between vāda and jalpa as didactic-scientific and agonistic-sophistical forms of debate, respectively. Looking at the relevant sutras in Gautama’s Nyāya-sūtra (NS 1.2.1-3) in light of the earlier discussion of the types of debate in Caraka Saṃhitā 8, the article argues that certain ambiguities and obscurities in the former text can be explained on the hypothesis that the early Nyāya presupposed an agonistic understanding of vāda similar to what we find in Caraka.

  4. Specifying the Nature of Substance in Aristotle and in Indian Philosophy.Hugh R. Nicholson - 2004 - Philosophy East and West 54 (4):533-553.
    : Aristotle struggles with two basic tensions in his understanding of reality or substance that have parallels in Indian metaphysical speculation. The first of these tensions, between the understanding of reality as the underlying substrate (to hupokeimenon) and as the individual "this" (tode ti), finds a parallel in the concept of dravya in Patañjali's Mahābhāsa. The second tension, between the understanding of reality as the individual this and as the intelligible essence of the individual this (to ti ēn einai), corresponds (...)

    The Unanswered Questions and the Limits of Knowledge.Hugh Nicholson - 2012 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 40 (5):533-552.
    In this article I look at the Buddha's refusal to answer certain questions in light of the dynamics of ancient Indian debate. Doing so foregrounds a dimension of the Buddha's interaction with his interlocutors that is central for understanding the problem of what are known as the Undetermined or Unanswered Questions: namely, the Buddha's knowledge and authority vis-à-vis rival teachers.

    Buddhist Selflessness and the Transformation of Folk Psychology.Hugh Nicholson - 2019 - Philosophy East and West 69 (1):215-238.
    In this article I would like to reflect on Buddhist soteriology in light of debates in cognitive science and philosophy of mind on the nature of folk psychology. My point of departure is the argument of Paul and Patricia Churchland that our commonsense understanding of mind and behavior can, and indeed should, be transformed on the basis of scientific knowledge of the brain and its functioning. Like many theorists in the 1980s and 1990s, the Churchlands regarded folk psychology—our natural and (...)

    Review of Bradley S. Clough, Early Indian and Theravāda Buddhism: Soteriological Controversy and Diversity: Amherst, NY: Cambria Press, 2012, ISBN: 978-1604978292, 286pp. [REVIEW]Hugh Nicholson - 2014 - Sophia 53 (4):581-583.
    Bradley S. Clough’s Early Indian and Theravāda Buddhism seeks to retrieve the soteriological diversity of early Buddhism that has been masked by the systematizing efforts of the Theravāda commentarial tradition. Deliberately breaking from the custom of reading the Pali Canon through the systematizing lens of the great fifth-century CE commentator Buddhaghosa, his monumental Visuddhimagga in particular, Clough points to evidence in the canonical texts for a variety of paths to liberation that resist efforts at harmonization and integration. Chapter 1 examines (...)
