Product Description

Beginnings of Learning

The world is that way - deceptive, the deceiving politicians, the money-minded. If you are not properly educated, you'll just slip into it. So what is education? Is it to help you fit into the mechanism of the present order, or disorder, of things? 

This and many more similar questions posed to senior students by Krishnamurti form the contents of this book, which contains mainly the dialogues he held in the 1970's in the school he founded in Brockwood Park, England. These lively and often intimate exchanges turn on practical, everyday matters as well as wider philosophical issues. The second part of the book contains Krishnamurti's writings, which take the form of conversations with parents and teachers. Whatever be the context, Krishnamurti's emphasis is that the central concern of education should be self-knowledge through inquiry and awareness.
