contribution was left unrealized. This controversial sage was one J. Krishnamurti; an uncompromising, iconoclast whose educational vision awaits rediscovery. With the book; Revolutionary Minds, The Educational Vision of J. Krishnamurti and Its Practice, that wait is over. Revolutionary Minds lays out the core of Krishnamurti's educational approach and offers a path to implementation. Written for teachers, parents and student of education, Revolutionary Minds explores Krishnamurti's central assertion that education is a matter of “awakening intelligence” and that such an awakening can only come about when the process of inquiry is valued above all else. The book spells out the conditions for nurturing a deeply inquisitive mind, a mind that's capable of not just academic excellence, but self-discovery and ultimately the creation of a new kind of society. Revolutionary Minds is a combination of pedagogical theory, research in the cognitive sciences and a firsthand understanding of Krishnamurti's educational vision. The result is both a critique of our current approach to education as well as a bold re-framing of the meaning and practice of teaching.
