English abstract

Prof. Rajan Gurukkal is a leading social scientist who has played an important role as an academician and public intellectual in India. He was a historian and was with the Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU), Kottayam, India. Many consider that due to the efforts of historians like Prof. Gurukkal the practice of writing history was opened up to the theoretical currents, which swept away the certainties that, the discipline was attributed to, creating a situation where in the very language of history came to be reconsidered. Social Sciences came closer to one another with their conventional boundaries blurring and history reaching out their interface. This monograph abstracts Gurukkal’s 45 papers archived at the MGU Institutional Repository and gives a short bibliographical analysis of his works. It finds that even though Gurukkal’s is basically a historian his research goes into areas rarely touched by historians, like environmental science, mountain ecology, biosphere conservation, management, psychology, etc and many other science and technology areas producing admirable results.
