History, philosophy and education are closely tied together; they are associated with teaching, learning, and discovering. History helps us understand how the past events shaped the present education systems by understanding the basis, major trends and developments in our educational system. History will also enable us to appreciate the importance of education to mankind of different generation. It also allow us to formulate a positive solution to our present day educational problems. In the same manner, Philosophy greatly affects our educational system. Due to the contributions of philosophers over the centuries, education has developed into the powerful tool that it is today. Without philosophy, education would essentially not exist. That said, the importance of philosophy in education is the fact that it is the foundation on which all academic teaching and intellectual learning is built. In short, philosophy determines the goal of life which we try to achieve by means of education.
