Abstract: Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), was not only Asia’s first Nobel Laureate, but also a great philosopher and an educationalist in a non-academic sense. He was born into a prominent family known for its socio-religious and cultural innovations during the Bengal Renaissance in 19th century. Since his earliest days, Rabindranath grew up in an environment where all the surging tides of the Indian Renaissance were flowing around his diurnal life. The present paper highlights the philosophical contribution of Rabindranath Tagore to education. It relates the importance of Tagore’s philosophy of education with different component of education and finally the implication of Tagore’s Philosophy on education.
Keywords: Education; Educational Philosophy; Tagore’s Contribution.
