A Place of Higher Learning  What is the value of achievement if we are unable to attain or maintain joy after having reached unimaginable success?

Most of us would agree it would be inappropriate to address such subjects in literature class or before a statistics exam, so where do these questions get addressed?

Schumacher, believed that all through school and university we are given guidance about life and knowledge, and generally this guidance had little relevance to the things that people cared about or the way they conducted their lives—the way life is really lived.
