            The thesis traced the Individual autonomy of the 17th century Europe and its reflection on society. We have emphasized over futurity, individualism, liberation, secularization and abstraction. These are the basic concept of social sciences. In modern rationalism nature become object of scientific investigation and control. This created a rupture between man and nature, in European thinking. The Indian intellectuals did not receive this in the same way. For us, there is a dichotomy between man and nature. The development of science and technology in Europe was aimed to control nature and society as well. Consequently we find that the problems to environment like depletion of ozone layer deforestation, global warming etc. In the postmodern science, we view science, technology, nature and society as a homogeneous whole.
