    Default pool of wisdom

    (context: Up to now, all leading universities have relied primarily on the deep Western pool of wisdom to provide both the method and content of their educational systems. This made sense. Western education created the most successful societies humankind has ever seen. )

    What does "pool of wisdom " and "societies" mean?
