Globalisation and Social Science

C P Bhambhri THE issue of 'academic colonialism' had attracted a powerful response in the 1970s and I published articles on 'Political Science in India' in EPW(May 3, 1975) and 'Political Science' in S C Dubey (ed), Social Science and Social Realities (Simla, 1976). In both these intellectual interventions I had maintained that the Marxist intellectuals were involved in a contest against bourgeois neo-colonial social scientists and the agenda of 'academic colonialism' cannot have a smooth sailing in India. It has become essential to revisit this issue at the fag end of the 20th century because the global arrangements of power and domination have under gone a basic change and it has exercised a profound impact not only on the Indian path of capitalist development but also on every strata of society including social science intellectuals.
