...प्राकृतिक विज्ञान के लिए पहला असाधारण कदम वास्तव में प्राचीन भारत में उठाया गया था। यह समय सम्भवतः बुद्ध से थोडा पहले का था। इसके साथ ही यह भी तथ्य है कि पारम्परिक भारत में प्राकृतिक विज्ञान बहुत शुरुआती या अल्पविकसित स्थिति से आगे विकसित नहीं हुआ। जाहिर है कि इसके विकास को रोकने वाला कोई बहुत मजबूत कारक मौजूद रहा होगा।

इसलिए इस शोध पत्र में उस ताकत को पहचानने की कोशिश की गयी है जो प्राचीन भारत में प्राकृतिक विज्ञान के विकास के प्रतिकूल साबित हुई। यह तर्क दिया जाता है कि प्राचीन भारत में विज्ञान को अपाहिज बनाने वाला प्रमुख कारक राजनीतिक था।

Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya

Late Professor Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya was an outstanding student of Indian philosophy in our times who was a self-proclaimed Marxist, itself unique. Until his death in 1993, he taught at the City College, Calcutta and published a large number of books in English and Bengali on a range of themes which opened up new vistas in the history, philosophy and social movements before scholars and the lay readers alike. Like a true Marxist, he looked upon creation of knowledge as a weapon of struggle for a better life for the masses.

Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya had earned his Doctorate from Calcutta University and had been conferred an Honorary D.Sc. by Moscow University. In his time, he was elected Member of the Academy of Sciences, (erstwhile) German Democratic Republic, Berlin, and National Fellow of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research for 1987-88. As Guest Scientist at the National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies, a CSIR constituent, he published the monumental History of Science and Technology in Ancient India. His Science and Society in Ancient India earned him praise from Professor Joseph Needham and was lauded in a review in Nature. His other prestigious books include Lokayata, Indian Atheism, What is Living and What is Dead in Indian Philosophy, Religion and Society, etc.
