Preface: Every science must have its special vocabulary or terminology. Sciences deal with ideas, thoughts, and concepts, and these must be expressed in words. Even the facts which are the groundwork of science must be set forth largely in words. No science, therefore, can have any more precision and exactitude than the words or other symbols, such as mathematical or chemical formulae, in which it is embodied. Quite generally, this situation calls for a special dictionary or glossary for each particular science.

Modern Indian Political Thought

Text and Context

In contrast to the existing literature on the subject, this book carries a context-driven conceptualization of the major strands of political thought that emerged in India in the past two centuries. It focuses on India's peculiar socio-political processes under colonialism that influenced the evolution of such thoughts. The distinguishing feature of this book is its linking of the text of Indian political thought with the context. In doing so, it challenges the ethno-centric interpretation of nationalism that despite its roots in western Enlightenment, evolved differently because of the context in which it was articulated.

lifeworld-ethnography of an Indian village

This book explores Karchana, a complex Hindu village community of 35 castes and 3900 members living close to the holy Ganges and celebrated centers of pilgrimage in the economically backward, but politically and culturally very fascinating and influential Eastern Uttar Pardesh region. Although classical in presenting a "holistic account" through field work and indology, this work offers a new approach to the problem of "writing culture" based on the concepts of arena, lifeworld, and intersubjective fact.

Life as a Dalit

Views from the Bottom on Caste in India

Author: Subhadra Mitra Channa,Joan P. Mencher

Publisher: SAGE Publishing India

ISBN: 8132118022

Category: Social Science

Life as a Dalit looks at caste society from the point of view of the Dalits, focusing on their worldview, emotions, and critical appraisal of their own position and of the higher groups. It is a volume based on the critical perspectives provided by scholars who have turned around the more acclaimed and accepted theories of caste society privileging the Brahmanical and textual interpretations of caste. It shows that those at the bottom have their own interpretations and follow a rationality that is tutored by their own life conditions and not what is fed to them from the top. These views from the bottom are indicative of the way in which the oppressed live their lives, make critical judgments, and also stage protests, both symbolic and based on real violence against the oppressive system. The focus is more experiential and based on ground-level data-based chapters. It foregrounds the fact that history is created from the bottom of society as well as from the top and those at the bottom are their own agents and well aware of their subject positions.
