"This study is on the role of Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) and Aurobindo Ghose (1872-1950) as religious personalities in the develop­ment of an educational philosophy and practice. The major part of the study is an analysis of the development of an educational theory and praxis – a practical activity shared by the three great reformers. The work reveals that all of them were consistent in their self understanding and in their articulation of the nature of man and the building of future humanity through education. The three reformers offer a challenge to both East and West in religion and education as one enters twenty-first century." About the Author William Cenkner (1930-2003) was Katharine M. Drexel Professor of Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America, Washington, USA. He is also the author of Tradition of Teachers: Sankara and the Jagadgurus Today.
