The Positive Background of Hindu Sociology: Introduction to Hindu Positivism

Front Cover
Motilal Banarsidass Publishe, 1985 - 697 pages
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 int he single document Sukraniti.
