Aravind Ganachari examines how Agarkar wanted reason and an enlightened conscience to be the sole determinant in regulating human conduct and social behaviour. His rational approach constantly re-examined all social ideas and institutions - whether they served the purpose of social utility and comfort or not. He was among the few contemporaries in whose thought and practice there was no dichotomy. Education, contends the author, not just formal but also informal Lokshikshan, holds the key to Agarkar's idea of human advancement in life.
