Sociology and Beyond: Windows and Horizons is an excellent, lively, and comprehensive odyssey, bringing new life to sociology by going beyond conventional paradigms and disciplinary boundaries. The book is a bold and pioneering endeavor in its quest for a new vision and practice of the idea of society. Offering the concept of society as ontological sociality and as a space of meditative verbs of co-realizations - self as well as collective - the book continues the border-crossing, transgressive, and transformative quest of those seeking knowledge and practice. It pleads for going beyond parochialism - both metropolitan and native, Western and Indian - and realizes sociology as part of multi-dimensional planetary conversations involving both comparative global studies as well as cross-cultural conversations. Thoughtfully argued and lucidly written, Sociology and Beyond: Windows and Horizons pleads for the sadhana of a transdisciplinary, transparadigmatic, and transformative sociology, animated by the passion of self-development, inclusion of the other, and planetary realizations.
