Abstract

This paper examines the role of the 21st century University in developing (i) Synergetics in Society and Academia, (ii) Progressive Democratic System and Socio-Economics, (iii) Education for liberation and fulfillment, (iv) the vision of an ideal model university. While the power of money in a bourgeois society had been studied by Karl Marx and the influence of capital in entrenching socio-economic class divides has been studies by Thomas Piketty, this paper suggests that universities can play a crucial role in reconstituting the post-capitalist socio-economic order.
