Examining Nehru biographies reveals how little the field has moved since the late 1950s. There has been a tendÂ�ency in the literÂ�atÂ�ure to repeat and embellish biographical details but not to generate new insights about Nehru, his polÂ�itics and his times. This is posÂ�sibly due to the fact that there has not been an attempt to apply fresh anaÂ�lytÂ�ical approaches drawn from the study of polÂ�itics and research on changing sociÂ�eties or sociÂ�eties in transÂ�ition. Nehru is genÂ�erally regarded as a unique, great man of hisÂ�tory.
Ontologically, the imÂ�portÂ�ant conclusion Weber drew, was that it is only indiÂ�viduals who attach a subÂ�jectÂ�ive meaning to their actions and hence all knowÂ�ledge about sociÂ�ety derives from knowÂ�ledge about indiÂ�viduals. As an adÂ�vocÂ�ate of methodoÂ�logical indiÂ�vidualism in the social sciences, Max Weber conÂ�sidered it posÂ�sible to use the social sciÂ�entÂ�ist’s unique relationship with his materÂ�ial to gain sciÂ�entÂ�ific insight. The sciÂ�entÂ�ific method, according to Weber, requires the reduction of a phenomenon to its comÂ�ponÂ�ents, but the reduction needs to be carried out to the appropriate level and not further.
1 A central asÂ�sumpÂ�tion used in such theory-Â�building exercises was the notion of equilibrium, a stable outcome at which point no indiÂ�vidual could achieve a greater (expected) payoff if he/she had unilaterally selected an alÂ�ternÂ�ative course of action. This was an imÂ�portÂ�ant idea because it supÂ�ported the conÂ�tention that politÂ�ical proÂ�cesses could result in predictable, stable social out comes, given the constraints imposed by the situation. In a key text of the time, The Theory of Political Coalitions, William Riker adÂ�vocÂ�ated a science of polÂ�itics by building up deductive structures derived from intuÂ�itÂ�ively justified axioms, to be then subjected to empirical tests.
