Iqbal--Education and Cultivation of Self: A Way Forward for Muslims of the Subcontinent
Nauman, Sarwat
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v50 n4 p326-337 2018
Whether all educationists were philosophers or not, one thing is clear--that all philosophers were educationists--directly or indirectly. May it be Plato, Aristotle, Rousseau or Dewey, they all came up with the notion that to bring about any change at a greater level in a society, change in its educational system is fundamental. Dr. Mohammad Allama Iqbal, though was a philosopher and a poet, also touched the very core of the problems existing in the Muslim societies of his time, through his reflection and recommendation upon the changes required in the educational system. Iqbal's educational philosophy is not only the solution to the problems that existed in his time, but also holds solutions to the prevalent problems of the Muslim societies. This essay seeks to explain the education policy that stems out of Iqbal's education philosophy. For the same purpose, a three-pillar visual diagram has been introduced that will help the readers grasp the importance given by Iqbal to the cultivation of ego in his education philosophy.
