Uses of Scientific Argument

The Case of 'Development' in India, c 1930-1950

This essay seeks to carry out an apparently simple task: to recover some of the ways in which 'science' was used as a category by nationalists in late colonial India in connection with the need for 'development'. In so doing, the essay also looks at ways in which 'science' became part of a legitimating rhetoric in late colonial India.
