Indian Modernity: Contradictions, Paradoxes and Possibilities

Avijit Pathak (Author)
Synopsis What characterizes contemporary sociology is its critical engagement with modernity. In Contemporary India too – especially, after the crisis of the Nehruvian agenda of nation-building – there is a critique of modernity: a critique development and sharpened by social scientists who have been influenced by Gandhism, critical theory and even postmodernity. The is book located in the context of this changing intellectual climate. By carefully examining deeply sensitive issues – from intellectual traditions in modern India to the traditions in modern India to the Growth of Hindutva in our times – it has reflected on the implications of modernity. Its possibilities, contradictions, paradoxes and ambiguities. It is this critical engagement with modernity that makes this book immensely meaningful to the students and scholars of Sociology, Philosophy, Psychology and Cultural Studies.
