Keywords: Indian science | reason | Enlightenment | cosmology | epistemology | the Vedas

This essay examines the intellectual sources of the cultural contradictions of India’s modernity. Rather than bring religion under the limits of scientific reason, India has witnessed a steady co-option of science into the spirit-based cosmology and epistemology of “the Vedas.” The history, logic and social consequences of this counter-Enlightenment are examined.
