Helianthus: Successful Undergraduate Programs Teaching Critical & Innovative Thinking? Loving Bliss Innovations?

World Univ & Sch is incorporated & has the very beginnings of resources coming in to develop great, focused, Reed College-like teaching & learning (Humanities' conference-style) ...

What other undergraduate programs successfully (?) teach students how to think critically?

How might build on this?

... with distribution requirements (languages, science, social science and everybody is required to take Freshman Humanities, etc), 'traditional' subjects, reading of primary texts ...

'life of the mind,'

no organized sports,

no fraternities or sororities ...


As an example of critical or innovative thinking, how might we elicit loving bliss neurophysiology when and as we want it, naturally?

There's an open, editable, subject for this at World Univ & Sch, where you can add your ideas about this.

As practices? MDMA is a reference experience. As 'flow' experiences (v-a-v Csikszentmihalyi)? ...

Here's an invitation to come into conversation abt this at WUaS or with friends.
