Winner of the Comparative and International Education Society Higher Education Special Interest Group Best Book Award for 2014! As universities increasingly engage with the world beyond the classroom and the campus, those who work within higher education are left to examine how the university's mission has changed. Official reviews and debates often forget to inquire into the purposes and responsibilities of universities, and how they are changing. Where these matters are addressed, they are rarely pursued in depth, and rarely go beyond current circumstances. Those who care about the university's role in society are left looking for a renewed sense of purpose regarding its goals and aspirations. The Future University explores new avenues opening up to universities and tackles fundamental issues facing their development. Contributors with interdisciplinary and international perspectives imagine ways to frame the university's future. They consider the history of the university, its current status as an active player in local governments, cultures, and markets, and where these trajectories may lead. What does it mean to be a university in the twenty-first century? What could the university become? What limitations do they face, and what opportunities might lie ahead? This volume in the International Studies in Higher Education series offers bold and imaginative possibilities.

Does it mean we need a revolution in the aims and methods of academic inquiry? What implications would the pursuit of wisdom have for science, for social inquiry and the humanities, for education?

Enlightenment has been eagerly sought for generations as a means to remove the limitations that compromise one's happiness. Vedanta, the science of self-inquiry, has been described as the grandfather of all enlightenment traditions. James Swartz explains and unfolds the methods of Vedanta in his direct style, while unravelling the myths and mysteries behind the enlightened state. But this book does not simply present one more set of spiritual techniques; it presents a comprehensive body of knowledge and practice that has successfully directed the inquiry into the nature of reality by untold thousands of enlightened beings. The author starts from the point of view of any individual seeking happiness and logically walks the seeker through the whole spiritual path. The book explains how self-inquiry affects the lives of those who practice it, including its effects on personality, relationships, and the mind. The book considers the qualifications necessary for enlightenment, as well as the obstacles encountered on all spiritual paths, and unfolds proven methods. The ancient teachings of Vedanta, once available only to those who could receive them directly from the sages of India, are now accessible to anyone with a hunger for freedom and enlightenment.

AWAKEN FROM THE DREAM OF 'ME' Zombies are not just the brain-eating undead or those who spend too much time on their cell phones and social media. They are people who live their lives believing that who they think they are is who they really are. Obviously, this applies to most of humanity. In order to rise out of the dream of believing that you are a little 'me' you must first recognize that you are knee deep in it. Once that recognition takes place you can begin removing all of the traps that you've created in order to keep yourself asleep. This book is a tool to help you through that process. "'How To Live With Zombies'" is a Simha Sat Combination Book that includes three smaller self-inquiry books: You The Buddha, There Are No Others and Sacred Nonsense. Chapter Descriptions: "You The Buddha: Freedom At The End of Your World" - This chapter provides an overview of what one is sure to encounter on the path of awakening and helps the reader navigate their spiritual path with authenticity and light-heartedness. "There Are No Others: Accepting The Reality Of Your Aloneness" - This chapter expands upon the nature of aloneness and how it specifically relates to awakening. "Sacred Nonsense: 21 Cherished Enlightenment Myths Debunked" - This chapter is designed to help the reader steer clear of unhelpful spiritual teachers and teachings in order to avoid any unnecessary confusion on the path of self-inquiry / self-realization. Feedback: "A wonderful gift to any seeker - Kyle takes the reader behind the content of our minds and points at the unconditioned Self. If you are tired of the usual recycled conceptual circular logic spirituality, and ready for spiritual transformation, give this book a chance. You'll find Kyle's inquiry approach honest and refreshing. - Karam Guirgis, Satsang Teacher" Kyle Hoobin is an author, photographer, graphic designer and self-inquiry teacher. In April of 2002 Kyle experienced a profound shift in consciousness following a long battle with depression. He now offers support for those seeking authentic freedom in their lives.
