The National Seminar on Philosophy of Value-Oriented Education (18-20 Jan.2002) was a major exercise in the exploration and formulation of the foundations of Value-Oriented Education, which is the central thrust of the National Policy of Education of 1986. The Seminar began with a critique of Macaulay's scheme of education and highlighted the contributions of some of the greatest pioneers of education who strove to develop a new system of education appropriate to the genius of India and in consonance with the progressive turn of humanity towards universality and unity. The seminar also brought out the lessons of experiments in Value- Oriented Education, which have been conducted by the governmental and non-governmental institutions in the country. A special feature of the Seminar was to underline the importance of the contribution that literature can make to the enrichment of the teaching- learning materials related to Value-Oriented Education. This volume brings together thoughts and reflections of a number of educational leaders who participated in the Seminar and who are greatly concerned with the need to develop with dimension of values in our system of education.
