Theory of U author Otto Scharmer on how to reinvent university.
?Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.? This quote from Plutarch is as true today as it was two thousand years ago.

In this column, I outline an idea that could reshape our universities while also prototyping new ways of addressing urgent societal challenges. The kindling of the flame that Plutarch talked about has never been more relevant than now.
