Sociological Traditions : Methods and Perspectives in the Sociology of India Hardback
Sociological Traditions book looks at the sociology of India from two perspectives: first, understanding the cultural traditions of India with special reference to religious and ethical values; and second, exploring the growth of the sociological traditions of India.
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.
