Indian political philosophy involves on the one hand speculations on the relationships between individual, society and state, and detailed treatises on the mechanics of statecraft, state policy, war and diplomacy and international relations.
Indian political philosophy may be categorized into six distinct traditions: the Sanskritic (c. 1200 BCE - 10th century CE); the Jain-Buddhist (6th century BCE - 2nd century CE); the Indo-Islamic (10th century CE-1857); the modern (c. 1857 - 1947); and, the contemporary (post-independence - present).
Contemporary Indian Political Philosophy/Theory is an emerging discipline garnering increasing interest with the rise of comparative political theory. The Indian political theorist Aakash Singh Rathore has been attempting to cultivate the discipline with the 2010 publication of Indian Political Thought--A Reader (Routledge), and the 2017 monograph Indian Political Theory: Laying the Groundwork for Svaraj (Routledge).
