Introducing Indian Society

Question

What do you understand by the term “partial”?

Answer

This term is used in two meanings or senses in context to sociology. Its former meaning is that of incomplete viz. in fraction or the opposite of whole or an inchoate. Its second meaning is that of biased or prejudicial viz a perceivable belief without contemplation or analysis. When we develop faith on things merely by seeing them or hearing about them, it falls in the category of unlearnt knowledge or common sense. Such knowledge of society is always unreal or unscientific.
