Inspiration

    "Education is a revolutionary concept that has continued to evolve since the times when Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and other great philosophers would come together with their followers in a room to discuss knowledge and exchange their ideas. Had Plato not suggested his brilliant concept of knowledge being presented to many in a place of learning, which we would call a building or an academy, education might have remained within the boundaries of small rooms to be shared by only a select few. Like those great thinkers of old, our group has met together with followers on a regular basis, discussing the possible directions that education and research might take in the new millennium. We were stumbling over the implications and mechanics of various interdisciplinary educational models until Dr. George Kozmetsky introduced the transdisciplinary concept. This concept has provided a light by which we have embarked on the implementation and development of a bold new educational process, the transdisciplinary model for education and research."

Dr. A. Ertas, 1999
