Education and philosophy go hand-in-hand. It is through the power of knowledge, our philosophers laid a foundation of educational theories, and set a stepping stone for the modern day education system and educational institutions.
This book gives a comprehensive account of the fundamental theories laid by the philosophers, and the society's role in shaping them up. The special feature of the book is that it teaches and explains more than what an ordinary teacher does in a limited time. It stresses on the understanding and practice of the concepts learnt rather than mere memorisation.
