Riassunto: Subject Lessons offers a fascinating account of how western knowledge “traveled” to India, changed that which it encountered, and was itself transformed in the process. Beginning in 1835, India’s British rulers funded schools and universities to disseminate modern, western knowledge in the expectation that it would gradually replace indigenous ways of knowing. From the start, western education was endowed with great significance in India, not only by the colonizers but also by the colonized, to the extent that today almost all “serious” knowledge about India—even within India—is based on western epistemologies. In Subject Lessons, Sanjay Seth’s investigation into how western knowledge was received by Indians under colonial rule becomes a broader inquiry into how modern, western epistemology came to be seen not merely as one way of knowing among others but as knowledge itself.

Drawing on history, political science, anthropology, and philosophy, Seth interprets the debates and controversies that came to surround western education. Central among these were concerns that Indian students were acquiring western education by rote memorization—and were therefore not acquiring “true knowledge”—and that western education had plunged Indian students into a moral crisis, leaving them torn between modern, western knowledge and traditional Indian beliefs. Seth argues that these concerns, voiced by the British as well as by nationalists, reflected the anxiety that western education was failing to produce the modern subjects it presupposed. This failure suggested that western knowledge was not the universal epistemology it was thought to be. Turning to the production of collective identities, Seth illuminates the nationalists’ position vis-à-vis western education—which they both sought and criticized—through analyses of discussions about the education of Muslims and women.

From the Publisher: "Subject Lessons revives a field that has remained dormant for years: the history of education in colonial India. This in itself is no small achievement. But Sanjay Seth does a lot more than that. Weaving together history and philosophical critiques of historicity and modernity, Seth has produced a book that is at once thoughtful and provocative. This outstanding book makes an original contribution to postcolonial criticism."--Dipesh Chakrabarty, author of Habitations of Modernity: Essays in the Wake of Subaltern Studies

"Subject Lessons is a very important contribution to understanding of the colonialization of knowledge and being. Imperial control is mainly control of subjectivity, and the control of subjectivity is largely based on education, on the formation of those to be subjected. Sanjay Seth's study of education in colonial India has implications far beyond the subcontinent. Touching on epistemology, politics (governmentality), religion (Muslims in India), the idea of the nation, gender and sexuality, ethics and history, Seth describes how colonial control of subjectivity has been and continues to be enacted."--Walter Mignolo, author of The Darker Side of the Renaissance: Literacy, Territoriality, and Colonization

Descrizione libro Duke University Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Subject Lessons: The Western Education of Colonial India, Sanjay Seth, "Subject Lessons" is a provocative and insightful analysis of the reception of western education in colonial India. Beginning in 1835, British colonizers sought to promote modern, western knowledge in India, primarily through schools. They anticipated that western knowledge would gradually replace indigenous ways of knowing, which they condemned as backwards. From the start, western education was endowed with great significance within India, not only by the colonizers but also by the colonized, to the extent that today almost all 'serious' knowledge about India - even within India - is based on western epistemologies.In "Subject Lessons", Sanjay Seth's investigation into how western knowledge was received by Indians under colonial rule becomes a broader inquiry into how modern, western knowledge came to be seen not merely as one way of knowing among others but as knowledge itself. Delving into a large archive of popular writings, and drawing on history, political science, and philosophy, Seth considers western education in India from various perspectives. He looks at two long-standing concerns of the colonizers: first, that Indian students were acquiring Western education via rote memorization and were therefore not acquiring 'true knowledge', and second, that western education plunged Indian students into a moral crisis in which they were torn between modern, western knowledge and traditional Indian beliefs.Seth argues that these concerns reflected the colonizers' anxieties that western education was failing to produce the modern subjects it presupposed; this failure suggested that western knowledge was not the universal epistemology the colonists thought it to be. Turning to the production of collective identities, Seth illuminates the nationalists' position vis-a-vis western education - which they both sought and criticized - through analyses of discussions about the education of Muslims and women.
