This course is an attempt to understand the problem called Indian Mathematics Education. The more general purpose is to develop a method of inquiry into the evolution of Knowledge and Education in India, as we see it in its present forms. We use Mathematics specifically as a knowledge system to illustrate this method - in order to be able to pay the kind of attention that the specificities of any knowledge system deserves for such an attempt.
