3 ABSTRACT ABSTRACT In the recent year philosophy of education in India has been passing through difficult times due to lack of methodological rigor and poor quality of researches. Undue influence of the low market value seems to have affected philosophy too. The outcome has been that philosophy has to fight for its survival. This subject also has been neglected by the general philosophers. However, this situation of negligence should not continue anymore. This definitely calls for rethinking to check its downfall and to visualize the rich opportunities this field provides. Recent developments of innovative technologies have provided new possibilities to researches. One should aim to restore the position of quantity and quality of researches in philosophy of education to its right place. A normative paradigm is proposed to describe the characteristics of philosophy of educational research in a national control. This paper explores the orientations of researches conducted in India in the field of philosophy of education.
