Description - Science and Scientification in South Asia and Europe by Axel Michaels

This volume critically examines the role of science in the humanities and social sciences. It studies how cultures and societies in South Asia and Europe underwent a transformation with the adoption or adaptation of scientific methods, turning ancient cultural processes and phenomena into an enhanced scientific structure.

The chapters in this book

  • Discuss the development of science as a method in modern and historical contexts and the differences between modern science, scientification and pseudoscience.

  • Study the interactions between bodies of knowledge such as Sanskrit and computer science; mathematics and Vedic mathematics; science and philosophy.
