Two Great Problems of Learning

Teaching in Higher Education, 8 (January):129-134 (2003)
Abstract
Two great problems of learning confront humanity: learning about the universe, and learning how to live wisely. The first problem was solved with the creation of modern science, but the second problem has not been solved. This combination puts humanity into a situation of unprecedented danger. In order to solve the second problem we need to learn from our solution to the first problem. This requires that we bring about a revolution in the overall aims and methods of academic inquiry, so that it takes up its proper task of promoting wisdom.
Keywords Learning about the universe  Learning how to create civilization  Need for academic revolution  Danger of science without wisdom
