Ideology and Theory in Indian Sociology

Yogendra Singh (Author)
Synopsis Ideology and Theory in Indian Sociology is a collection of essays which offers insight into the normative and ideological underpinnings of the Indian sociology in the context of its growth and the challenges that it has encountered in the realms of theory and methodology. These issues have been analyzed in the perspective of the western sociology and its own theoretical and methodological evolution. The book highlights how Indian sociology, despite its deeper linkages with the theoretical and methodological traditions of the west, has in the ideological and normative domains evolved successfully its own discourse. The volume also illustrates the nature of the inner epistemological tensions which continue to dominate the debates on how to ground the Indian sociology and its paradigms into the Indian philosophical traditions. This epistemic tension is also reflected in the manner that the crisis in the western sociology's philosophical moorings continue to cross-mirror in the Indian sociology as well. An instance in this context, which this volume has analyzed is that of the philosophy of 'post-modernity' and its challenge to the theories and methods of the Indian sociology. It is hoped that this volume would offer a perspective to the sociological studies of these problems.
