The present work attempts to construct an integral history of sciences in India. Researches in philosophy of modern sciences over the last half a century have given rise to new insights in historiography which the author exploits for construction of a rational history. The origin of Indian cognitive history is systematically traced to Veda Samhitas and its subsequent growth, decline and resurgence are explored in Sastra, Tantra and Vijnana phases in this brief and lucid presentation. Contents Foreword 1. Introduction 2. Conception of History and Historiographical Method 3. Veda-Samhita Paradigm in Samhita Phase 4. Transition Period 5. Emergence of a New Paradigm and the Onset of Sastra Phase 6. Growth and Decline 7. Tantra Phase : Creativity without a Paradigm 8. Vijnana Phase : The Paradigm of Natural Science 9. Substantiation of General Cognitive History 10. Conclusion
