The paper deconstructs the primary theory of religious and cultural values defined by Max Weber in the Hindu caste system through a Marxist argument of the 'other' and through the affectations of 20th century imperialism. The paper explains that by understanding Weber's primarily subjective arguments about the limitations of Hindu caste society, he fails to understand the direct materialist correlation between production and the divisions of class arguments brought forth by Marx that define economic efficacy. The paper explains that this often leads to subjective and nebulous definitions of Hindu society as the 'other' within a global context.
