This paper discusses the argumentative reasoning methodology adopted during knowledge sharing and the special techniques utilized from Indian logic to reason with inconsistent knowledge. Winning or losing arguments are not important; the amount of valid information shared between the arguers during rational debate qualifies for the scope of discussion. Proponent's arguments explain one's thoughts or beliefs to the opponent. The knowledge shared by the proponent may be invalid or inconsistent with respect to the opponent's common sense knowledge. Therefore, the opponent reverts rationally through a counterargument. The proponent then removes the contradictions and proposes subsequent argument to the opponent. This exchange of propositions or arguments continues until the participant(s) is convinced about the shared knowledge. The validity of the shared knowledge shall be evaluated by measuring the components of the participants' knowledge base.
