Universities and Modernity

The shriveled visions of universities under the impact of modernity--particularly the effects of bureaucracy and technology--seem more concerned to produce people who are technically competent but who have little interest in the whys and wherefores of their competencies. Education must be oriented to preparation for a calling and not just training for a career. The difference is one of substance, not semantics.
