Philosophy of Education and Life

7. Philosophy of Education and Life:

There has been one criticism of the educational system that it is divorced from life. This is a valid criticism because, even philosophically, the aims of education and life should be co-terminus. However, when thought is being developed for relating education to life, there is no clarity as to how education and life can be correlated. A deeper reflection is absolutely necessary in the proposed programme. We may, therefore, provide for a philosophical exploration of the aims of life as also of how thinkers of the East and the West have endeavored to develop their philosophy of education in the context of the aims of life.

Many others subjects and topics can also be included. Some of the relevant topics have been indicated in the relevant (Annexure VII).
