Accepted as a polymath, D.D. Kosambi was first to use an interdisciplinary method in historical investigation, and to deploy his mathematical and scientific genius to the study of issues as wide ranging as the reading of ancient Indian texts, numismatics, philology, religion, historical reconstruction, archaeology, and anthropology. Professionally trained as a mathematician, he also contributed prodigiously to indological studies—both as an editor of classical Sanskrit texts, and as an interpreter of India’s historical past. The Oxford India Kosambi, part of the prestigious Oxford India Collection, brings together many significant writings spanning an illustrious, often pioneering career of almost thirty years. Compiled and edited by an eminent historian, B.D. Chattopadhyaya, it exemplifies the versatility and breadth of Kosambi’s work. In an essay especially written to mark Kosambi’s birth centenary, Chattopadhyaya suggests a re-reading of the scholar before situating him in any intellectual or ideological framework. The editor also includes one of Kosambi’s rare though fascinating essays on the study of mother goddess cult sites.
