CSCS - Centre for Study of Culture & Society


Reconceptualizing the Human Sciences
Project Coordinator : Vivek Dhareshwar, Senior Fellow

This project explores the historical and conceptual problems involved in the idea of a social science. By showing that what passes for social science today cannot possibly be science, it seeks to investigate the conditions that any social science must satisfy. Case studies of Indian intellectual traditions will be used to demonstrate

    • how the existing social sciences have rendered them opaque
    • how they provide both the questions and the method for reconceptualizing the human sciences.
