The Idea of Feudalism, from the Philosophes to Karl Marx


  • S.N. Mukherjee


The title of this conference -'Feudalism: a comparative study in social and political structures of pre-industrial societies', emphasises the inter-disciplinary approach of our Association. We wish to break down artificial barriers and constraints put upon us by the very organisation of our universities. There are here historians, political scientists, anthropologists, linguists, literary critics and philosophers.
