Item description for Education in Ancient India (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik) by Hartmut Scharfe...

A comprehensive survey of all aspects of education in India, both in the oral and written traditions. Chronologically it covers everything from the Vedic period up to the Hindu kingdoms before the establishment of Muslim rule. If relevant, the reader will regularly find sidesteps to modern continuities. The role of the oral tradition and the techniques of memorization are discussed, along with education in small private tutorials and the development of large monasteries and temple schools approaching university character. Professional training, the role of the teacher and of foreign languages are dealt with, and the impact of the peculiar features of Indian education on Indian society.
