Learning

An engaging sequel to Culture and the mysterious agent changing it is Wietgrefe’s
thought-provoking Learning As it Influences the 21st Century.

  • Experience cannot be passed on; it must be learned.

  • Like destroyers of ancient libraries, systems can vanish not just by destruction, but also by changed learning systems.

  • Many children have been given everything including free and subsidized education into their twenties. Consequently, their minds have not developed abilities to satisfy basic needs.

  • Some of the world’s most fascinating and innovative problem solvers of the past two centuries were independent thinkers. School was an aid, not a solution.

  • Traditional learning relies on memory. The computer literate do not.

  • World transition to electronic artificial memory may be the biggest setback in human history.

  • The world does not survive on those in school. It survives and changes when people act, work, think, are responsible, and take risks.
