IDEAS OF INDIA seeks to further the study of modern Indian political thought by drawing attention to the vibrant public sphere that took shape in the century prior to Independence. Sadly, most of the writers that commanded this stage, and endowed the Republic with its distinctive ‘argumentative’ ethos, have now been forgotten. The hope is that recalling these urbane and often brilliant thinkers will foster a richer and deeper understanding of Indian intellectual history.
