Overview

From antiquity, education has been an intricate concern to the human society. The riddle that has always remained hard to solve is how education should help man to deal with his totality of being, that is, social, economic, political, and personal challenges. Many great philosophers of education have wrestled with this issue but have ended up building education on radically divergent theories of education, schools of education, culture and science. They brew a notion that education is all about the acquisition of knowledge and content of whatever kind. They fail to recognize that the ultimate goal of education is to bring man to full realization of himself so as to understand his being. Therefore, this book is an attempt to disabuse this notion and build a foundation in education that can unify these disparate, conflicting and reductionist theories in education. The author proposes that transcendental philosophy of education is the one and only key to authentic education, which is characterized by intellectual, moral and religious conversion. This book is crucial for students & teachers in Philosophy of Education, Ethics, Epistemology, History of education at all levels.
