Education in Emerging Indian Society

Y.K. Singh (Author) Ruchika Nath (Editor)
Synopsis Human beings’ desire to know more about their world has led them from primitive superstition to modern scientific knowledge. from mysticism, doctrine, and the limitation of unsystematic observation based upon personal experience, they have examined the process of thinking itself to develop the method of deductive-inductive thinking which has become the foundation of scientific methods. Although first applied as a method of the physical sciences, the process of scientific inquiry has also become the prevailing method of the behavioral sciences and it is also consider as Philosophy of human and, in new world it is known as Emerging Society of mankind. A beginner in philosophy is perturbed to find that different-philosophers have given different definitions of philosophy. While some philosophere have laid emphasis on psychological facts, others have given more importance to values. According to John Dewey, “Whenever philosophy has been taken seriously, it has always been assumed that it signified achieving a wisdom that would influence the conduct of life”. On the other hand, according to Windelban, philosophy is the critical science of universal values”. While there is much difference in Indian and Western definitions of philosophy, one finds widely different definitions presented by Western philosophers also. Of these definitions some emphasize the critical aspect of philosophy while others laid emphasis upon its synthetic aspect. Philosophy can only be an effort to dissolve again into the whole, the ocean of life in which we are immersed, whence we draw the very force to labour and to live and from which both matter and intellect originate. Bergson gives this statement to justify the thinking of human for the society. The Indian Philosophy is the oldest one in the known aspects of the human philosophy and it is mainly depend on the nature and truth. The main theme of the Indian Philosophy is nature, beauty and God. Human values are the main considerable elements of the Indian social system. The present book is based on the Emerging Indian Society and related with the modern and Indian human values with both of thinkers. The author has been teaching educational philosophy for last twelve years to M.Ed., M.B.A. and guiding Ph.D. students. Students often expressed that there is no such comprehensive book in philosophy of education, which can satisfy their needs. It was the encouragement of students of different disciplines and research scholars that led me to take up this work and the book “Education in Emerging Indian Society” is in your hands as a solution and future guidance in the field of research.
