About this title

Synopsis:

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 divorced from history (especially from the very political atmosphere of the period, when it was a colonial India) is difficult to situate. The present study, keeping Sri Aurobindo's ideas on education central to it, also explores classical Indian model of education, the Bengal National model for education and also explores 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, as an acarya in the typical classical Upanisadic model, had far-reaching influences upon his disciples. This volume is an eye-opener for the subject on professional ethics for teachers and on the inter-personal relation between the teacher and student. 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 researchers. This volume is surely helpful in the domain of Sri Aurobindo Studies.
