Some subscribers to LrnAsst might be interested in a post "How Universities Can Help to Create a Wiser World."

The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT: Philosopher Nicholas Maxwell, in his HoPoS-L post "How Universities Can Help to Create a Wiser World" calls attention to his recent book of that title  see <> wherein it's stated: "We need urgently to bring about a revolution in universities round the world so that their basic aim becomes wisdom, and not just knowledge."

Psychologist Robert Sternberg at <> agrees with Maxwell that "Academic Intelligence Is Not Enough."

Furthermore, agreement with Maxwell that universities need to improve has also been voiced by some former Presidents and Chancellors of universities as I have indicated in "Are colleges failing?" [Hake (2005)] at <> and "Evaluating the Effectiveness of College" [Hake (2013)] at <>.
