It is a sad fact that, even today, political theory continues to be defined by the Western canon. In this groundbreaking work, Gurpreet Mahajan tackles this predisposition head-on, bringing into focus the ways that concepts central to the modern democratic political imaginary are understood in India. Drawing upon critical debates and political practices, the book elaborates how questions of freedom, equality and difference, of religion and state, of critical reason and embedded self are layered with new meanings.
