Development, Culture and Education

Human beings, once born, will be unable to survive if not raised by their parents for a very long time. This is 'education'. Then there is something called 'culture' - something that enables them not only to survive but to influence their chances of survival. This book discusses the relationship between education and culture with a view to development. People today are meeting each other under very different circumstances - sometimes positive, sometimes negative. How we deal with others has a tremendous impact on cultural, political and economic life. This book also deals with relationships between cultures in different countries, as well as different cultures existing in the same country. The starting point of this book was the forty-third session of the International Conference on Education (Geneva, 1992) which discussed 'The contribution of education to cultural development'. Several of the chapters in this book were originally submitted to the Conference delegates as information papers.
