This book examines:
Education and the aim of life through the ages
How the conception of progress is the primary driving force in the modern world
How this limited understanding of "progress" has failed to satisfy the deepest aspirations of humanity, bringing modern civilisation to its present crisis and highlighting the limitations of today's education to meet this crisis.
The author presents the free progress system at the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education and explains how the views of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother on integral education can prepare the children of today to consciously and luminously participate in the evolutionary destiny of the future.
