|Title:||Use of symbolic language in teaching (Training in library science 9)|
Ranganathan, S R
|Abstract:||The use of symbols is helpful in the communication of ideas. But the receiver's mind should be trained to accept, understand and apply symbolic language by mere reflex action. This requires individual training. In the formal class room atmosphere, this training is difficult if not impossible. Tutorial and extra-mural hours of intimate personal discussion are necessary: The Sanskrit term Anthevasi (=one living in intimate proximity) for "student" highlights this principle of individual instruction.|
