Education has been held in high esteem throughout the history of Islamic civilisation. This book discusses classical Islamic approaches to education from philosophical, Sufi, and traditional viewpoints. A discussion of the classical subjects of scholarly study - such as Arabic grammar, theology, logic, and medicine - forms the basis of this book. Additionally, attention is given to ideals about teachers, students, methods of education, and higher education. This book is part of a series of translations from the Encyclopaedia of the World of Islam (EWI) which was originally compiled in Persian. Other entries from this encyclopaedia which are available in English include Hawza-yi 'Ilmiyya, Hadith, Periodicals of the Muslim World, Muslim Organisations, Political Parties, Qur'anic Exegeses, Qur'anic Exegesis, Sufism, and Muslim Organisations.
