EPISODE DESCRIPTION

October 2, 2014
Dhruv Raina, Professor at the Zakir Husain Centre for Educational Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India
University of King’s College, Halifax, NS

How did Indian intellectuals receive and respond to Western notions of the histories of philosophy and science in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? How did Indian intellectuals attempt to reconstruct the history of their own tradition? This talk will explore how the works of key thinkers William Whewell and J.S. Mill were taken up by Indian philosophers and historians in Calcutta at the end of the nineteenth century, and how these influenced the interpretation of the history of Indian philosophy and science. The Indian response will be gleaned from a detailed discussion of the works of the Indian philosopher B.N. Seal and the sociologist Benoy Kumar Sarkar.
