“If we only pursue a type of knowledge based on what can be calculated, we will be turning a blind eye to human reality.” Edgar Morin spoke to GUNI about key questions in the areas of higher education, universities and today’s society in general. Professor Morin, a man of exceptional farsightedness, warns of the great blindness of our times and underlines the role and responsibility of universities in establishing authentic dialogue and understanding among cultures and civilisations. He is researcher emeritus at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France and is recognised internationally for his work on complexity theory. He has also written numerous books.
