Summary

This volume critically examines the role of science in the humanities and social sciences. It studies how cultures and societies in South Asia and Europe underwent a transformation with the adoption or adaptation of scientific methods, turning ancient cultural processes and phenomena into an enhanced scientific structure.

The essays in this book,  

  • Discuss the development of science as a method in modern and historical contexts, and the differences between modern science, scientification, and pseudoscience.

  • Study the interactions between bodies of knowledge such as Sanskrit and computer science; mathematics and Vedic mathematics; science and philosophy. 

Drawing on textual material, extensive fieldwork and in-depth interviews, this book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of philosophy, Indology, history , linguistics, history and philosophy of science, and social science.
