(Vāda-vidhi) A Method for Argumentation is the only work on logic by Vasubandhu which has to any extent survived.

It is the earliest of the treatises known to have been written by him on the subject.

This is all the more interesting because Vāda-vidhi marks the dawn of Indian formal logic.

The title, "Method for Argumentation", indicates that Vasabandhu's concern with logic was primarily motivated by the wish to mould formally flawless arguments, and is thus a result of his interest in philosophical debate.
