First published in 1953, this classic Krishnamurti work demonstrates that education which does not result in deep integration of thought, feeling, and outlook is useless. Many contemporary methods of teaching emphasize slavish conformity to mass values and overstress the importance of technique; Education and the Significance of Life offers an alternative approach that stresses self-knowledge and a atmosphere of freedom and love for the child, to help create an atmosphere in which real education can take place. Education and the Significance of Life is a penetrating inquiry into the nature and requirements of the kind of education that can lead to self-fulfillment and ultimately, to world peace.
