Al-Ghazali on Moral Education
Alavi, Hamid Reza
Journal of Moral Education, v36 n3 p309-319 Sep 2007
Al-Ghazali (1058-1111 CE) is probably the most influential scholar, philosopher, theologian, legal expert, religious reformer and mystic in the history of Islam. Although he wrote extensively about education, and particularly about moral education, this writing is scattered through a number of different works and has received less scholarly attention than other themes in his work. The purpose of this article is to extract and analyse his views on education, morality and moral education, setting these in the context of his life and times.
