History and Theory of Knowledge Production

An Introductory Outline

Professor Rajan Gurukkal

  • A negligible amount of work has been done on the history of knowledge with a focus on methodology and epistemology. This book addresses this gap.
  • There are very few books which deal with the social history of science and modernism or science and colonialism.
  • A vast array of sources have been used, including Greek, Prakrit, Chinese, and Arab texts.
  • It is the focus on the methodological history of knowledge production which makes book an original attempt.
