Inside This Issue

The need for revolutionary transformation of higher education discussed in previous issues of Cadmus is acquiring momentum. In spite of the initial problems, skepticism and resistance, online education is rapidly gaining ground both within universities and outside them in MOOCs and alternative educational delivery systems. Today more than 17 million students are participating in online courses in the US and those numbers are rising fast in other countries as well. But the quantitative expansion of higher education represents only one side of the essential change that is needed. The work of the World Academy of Art & Science to evolve solutions to pressing global challenges has also called for revolutionary changes in the content and pedagogy of higher education that are needed to move beyond the inadequate piecemeal approach to knowledge and social problems prevalent today.

Inside this Issue

The World Academy of Art & Science has conducted fifteen conferences over the past three years exploring various dimensions of a human-centered development paradigm intended to address the multi-dimensional challenges confronting humanity today. This project is based on the premise that incremental improvements in institutions and policies are insufficient to cope with the increasingly globalized, rapidly changing, interconnected and complex evolution of the human community now in process.

Inside this issue

Part 1 of this issue of Cadmus contains discussion documents for the next in the series of World Academy conferences on New Paradigm of Sustainable Human Development, which will be conducted in Almaty, Kazakhstan on November 5-7, 2014. Efforts to date confirm the conclusion that a new paradigm must necessarily be founded on a new theoretical framework based on universal values and a trans-disciplinary perspective of social evolution. “Unification in the Social Sciences: Search for a Science of Society” by Garry Jacobs, Winston Nagan & Alberto Zucconi provides an overview of perspectives that emerged from two trans-disciplinary courses conducted by WAAS and World University Consortium in Dubrovnik earlier this Fall. Human aspirations and perceptions of the future play a crucial role in determining behavior and outcomes. Read More

Transition to a New Society

Abstract

The contemporary world is global, uncertain and rapidly changing. The present economic, social and political paradigm is destroying natural, human and social capital at an accelerating pace. Problems generated by these destructions require urgent solution. All these problems are complex, and cannot be addressed in a piecemeal, sectorial fashion. These problems cannot be solved within the existing paradigm. They have to be addressed holistically, simultaneously and immediately. A new holistic economic, social and governance paradigm is needed. The new paradigm has to be human-centered and sustainable. It should be global, constantly evolving by overcoming inherent uncertainties. A new paradigm is achievable while preserving the valuable components of the existing paradigm. Read More
