Education

Philosophy and Practice

The anthology Education: Philosophy and Practice, an academic initiative of the Centre for Sri Aurobindo Studies, Jadavpur University, elaborates and analyses various strands of Sri Aurobindo's thoughts on education. Sri Aurobindo's divorce from history (especially from the very political atmosphere of the period, when it was a colonial India) is difficult to situate. The present study, while keeping Sri Aurobindo's ideas and ideals on education central to it, also explores the classical Indian model of education, the Bengal National model for education and also examines individual viewpoints of some of his distinguished contemporaries like Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Sister Nivedita, Ananda Coomaraswamy and others. Sri Aurobindo, as a practical guide and an acarya in the typical classical Upanishadic model, had far-reaching influence on his disciples. This concise volume covering a vast panorama of academics is an eye-opener on the subject of professional ethics for teachers as also on the meaningful inter-personal relations between teachers and students. The present volume consists of twelve essays which are analytic, informative and lucid in style. This is a well-rounded text for students and an essential reference for teachers and researchers. This volume is surely helpful in the domain of Sri Aurobindo Studies.
