Abstract: Govind Sadashiv Ghurye is often called the “father of Indian sociology.” As head of the leading department of sociology in India for over three decades (the Department of Sociology at Bombay University), as the founder of the Indian Sociological Society, and as the editor of the Sociological Bulletin, he played a key role in the institutionalization and professionalization of sociology and anthropology in India. Although Ghurye’s cultural–historical approach was soon superseded by the structural–functionalist paradigm promoted by his former student M. N. Srinivas, he left an indelible mark on the theory and practice of social anthropology and sociology in India.
