    • Abstract:
      In this article, the author discusses the system of doctor of philosophy degree (PhD). The author compares doctoral-education programmes to European universities during the Middle Ages, wherein education seems like a cloning process in which the students are trained to do what their mentors do resulting to more clones than mentors. He suggests that universities must create curricula which focus on solving practical problems.
