Afzaluddin Mohammad Ibn Hassan Maraghi Kāshāni, a great 7th century scholar, views education as the paving of the grounds for the proper actualization of man’s potentialities. To him this proper end is an intellectual and divine life. The final goal of education is the knowledge through educational morals. To him man need to be educated from childhood so that his wisdom and reason develops. To him living withough learning and teaching would be futile. This paper reviews the educational views reflected in Bābā afzal’s ideas and elaborates on the nature and meaning of education as the condition for man’s change and self-realization.
