About the authors

Pradip K. Singh

Pradip Kumar Singh: M. Sc. And Ph. D. in Anthropology from Ranchi University, Dr, Singh is at present Reader in Antrhopology, Ranchi University. After two decades of Late Professor L. P. Vidyarthi’s study of The Maler: A Study in Nature-Man-Spirit Complex (1963) Dr. Singh restudied the tribe in 1983 for his Doctoral Work, and that too at the behest of Dr. Vidyarthi himself. In his restudy of the Maler he gave altogether a new dimension to the concept by presenting a mathematical computation. His proposition that the Nature-Man-Spirit Complex is a constant is a landmark and a pioneering piece of work in the field of fundamental researches in Social Cultural Anthropology in India. Author of several research papers, Dr. Singh has been chiefly interested in teaching and doing researches on the Theories and History of Anthropological Thought. His latest article Recent Trends in Anthropological Thought (2002) has been well received.
