Wisdom à la mode: launch the go-getters (2 of 2)

June 23, 2011

It was welcome indeed to see the argument for a rediscovery of wisdom in higher education. Given this, it is most unfortunate that the performance criteria for most academics seem to be the generation of research income from whatever source and 3-star or 4-star research published in "high-ranking" journals. Applied with no nuance to all disciplines in this way, these criteria probably have a spurious relationship with generating wisdom in ourselves or others.
