About the Book

“This book, Sociological Thought: In the Light of J. Krishnamurti’s Philosophy, is an exceptional and brilliant contribution of the author whom I consider as a unique academic intellectual of contemporary times. I am sure no one in the academic sphere has so far attempted to explain Social Thought the way the author has analyzed and presented.”

G. Satyanarayana,

Emeritus professor of Sociology at Osmania University, Hyderabad.

This book first covers the basic ideas in Sociological Thought from Comte to postmodernism. It comprehensively discusses Marx, Weber, Durkheim and Parsons, giving prominent place to Marx. It then takes Thought to its philosophical roots and also widens it by bringing in Kant, Nietzsche and Freud.

Why J. Krishnamurti here? Well, that is a way of bringing the Buddha to the discussion.
