Fighting out the modern day sophists

[In Buddhism and modern Rationalism we have the denial of God, the grand negation… [p.500] Buddhism views the same set of facts from the other end of thought. Not self-working material force, but a mass of subjective sensations is its reading of the universe. [p.496] Isha Upanishad, CWSA 17]
Sri Aurobindo is quite forthright in fighting out adversarial thought patterns. But it is an enigma as to why the modern day sophists are so sympathetic to their worn out arguments. [TNM]
