The Positive Background of Hindu Sociology

Benoy Kumar Sarkar (Author)
Synopsis The work is mainly an analytical study of Sukracharya's code, so that the data of Hindu Sociology collected here reflect generally those phases of Indian cultural evolution which have influenced the authors of the Sukra cycle. This Positive Background of Hindu Sociology, therefore, is more or less a statical picture, and represents chiefly such landmarks in the culture-history of the Hindus as are embodied in the single document Sukraniti. The Introduction to Sukraniti has been called the Positive Background of Hindu Sociology, because Sukraniti as a Nitisastra, Arthasastra, Dharmasastra, or Dharma-sutra deals mainly with the topics implied by such Hindu Categories as Dharma (morals), Artha (interests) and Kama (desires and passions) as opposed to Moksa (salvation); and hence a study in Sukraniti should properly be a study in the non-moksa or non-transcendental and non-mystical i.e., the secular, worldly, materialistic and 'positive' elements of Hindu social economy.
