Proponents of perennialism preach that the purpose of education is to attain knowledge for its own sake. This rather dogmatic view is based on the faith perennialists have in the nature of humans, through being educated, to utilise the knowledge gained purposively. The enrichment of the intellect leads to character development; hence man can improve himself through moral and spiritual uplifting. It can be said that education based on the concept of perennialism enables man to reason, rationalise and eventually do good.The teaching-learning approach is very much focussed on reasoning founded upon the ideas of the great philosophers of ancient times as well as the classic works of scientists, writers and ideologists of the last few hundred years. They stressed on the inculcation of religious and ethical values. In other words, the principle of perennialist education is to be good and do good, based upon universally accepted moral values.
