'Thus have I heard' and other claims to authenticity: development of rhetorical devices in the Sarvastivada Satpadabhidharma texts

Bart Dessein UGent (2012) Zen Buddhist rhetoric in China, Korea, and Japan. In Conceptual History and Chinese Linguistics 3. p.121-162
abstract
In this essay, the development of the use of rhetorical devices in the so-called 'canonical' texts of Sarvastivada scholasticism is discussed. Attention goes to the oral background of text transmission, the gradual evolution of the use of script to transmit texts, and the implications the latter had for the development of both intertextual and intra-textual rhetorical devices. It is argued that an analysis of the development of the use of rhetorical devices may serve as an instrument to date texts.
