In this lecture, CLI-fellow Tim De Mey (ESPhil) identifies the four most central problems in the philosophy of innovative higher education. He argues that the most pressing problem is the applicability gap, i.e., the gap between deep but narrow scientific puzzles and complex extra-scientific real-world problems. Subsequently, he outlines how philosophy can and should play a pivotal role in bridging the applicability gap.
