On the Spiritual Dimension of Education: Finding a Common Ground
Dayton, Eric
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v50 n3 p432-447 Aug 2016
Questions about the place of spirituality in publicly funded schools are made difficult in a multicultural secular society. I discuss the work of Paulus Geheeb and Rabindranath Tagore, two great 20th century educational innovators, to offer, by way of an argument from analogy with the social importance of moral education, a common ground for spiritual education.
