Sociological Traditions: Methods and Perspectives in the Sociology of India (Hardback)T. N. M. Madan (author)
- We can order this
Divided in two parts, the book goes beyond mere description of the main religious traditions and looks at the ethical values that are embedded in the religio-secular traditions of India. It also projects the sociological traditions of India as a historical process, a process of growth of sociological knowledge. The basic premise of the discussion is not one dominant cultural tradition but the plurality that characterizes the cultural, religious and value traditions of India, and pluralism that characterizes the sociology of India.

It is only appropriate that he now looks back at it with a mix of intimacy and professional detachment. And he does so with unfailing sensitivity to the ways in which cultures of knowledge and individual lifecycles interact. -- Ashis Nandy
