Essays in Social and Political Philosophy
Essays in Social and Political Philosophy
Description
From the Back of the Book

There is an increasing awareness of the importance of social and political philosophy today, a recognition that without a conceptual grasp of factual details a proper understanding of social and political events must elude an observer.

In this collection of essays philosophers, as well as social scientists, have tried to clarify the basic concepts of social and political philosophy in terms of contemporary findings and historical facts, wherever necessary the concepts have been reviewed in the light of Indian conditions.

The seven sections of the book comprise Scope, Nature and Method of Social and Political Philosophy, some basic Concepts, Some Main Trends, Forms of State change and India and finally, an epilogue which reviews some problems of sociology of Knowledge.

The book should meet the academic requirements of advanced students in our universities. Not only philosophers, but also political scientists, sociologists, and scholars from related disciplines should find it very useful.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
