About the Book

This thesis explores wisdom knowledge, the wisdom of the heart, both ancient and contemporary, as embodied in translations, commentaries and interpretations of Eastern philosophies presented by spiritually knowledgeable writers. This thesis offers constructive educational approaches and transformative methods leading to an expansion of consciousness and awareness. The importance of incorporating into educational pedagogy the concept of synthesizing the intellectual knowledge of the mind with the wisdom knowledge of the heart is highlighted in this thesis.The objective of this thesis is to contribute to the prevailing Western perspective of academic theory and practice by inspiring, stimulating and generating enthusiasm for exploration and comprehensive discussion by individuals interested in a more inclusive, integrated and holistic vision of education.This thesis examines the Western system of education as defined and formulated in terms of the development of exclusive identification with intellectual knowledge, the intellect of the mind.
