Chapter 4 ends Part I of the book with an account of the reaction to Holwell’s and Dow’s ideas throughout Europe, pointing to how, despite their differences, the common ‘philosophical’ quality of their enquiries had a significant impact on numerous intellectual elements of the late Enlightenment period. This includes a discussion of debates on the legitimacy of Company governance and the significance for their work in debates on empire.
Chapter 5 situates the work of Halhed in relation to the practical uses of orientalist knowledge when it comes to establishing the legitimacy of a British presence in India, while also tracing elements of both the religious heterodoxy and scepticism in his presentation of the Code of Gentoo Laws. It then turns to an account of his involvement in Company politics, and more particularly his support for Warren Hastings throughout the impeachment trial.
