Because the basis of learning in the contemporary university is pleasure-based, and therefore non-teleological/non-logical. Telos, and Logic, are, as far as I can tell, intertwined, like siblings.In what way is logic lacking? Someone who is in doubt of the necessity of acknowledging a telos for existence would dispute your claim. How would you demonstrate to him that (a) teleology is necessary in order to have an intellible form of logic, and that (b) the university today fails in that regard?
a) Teleology is defined by the path of Wisdom, and Wisdom is achieved through Logic. Why? As you say, Logic is the contextualisation of facts. Mere non-teleological accumulation of data simply exists for some pleasure, and not for the contextualisation of itself, in order to produce wisdom.
b) As someone has already stated, universities were all modernized in the nineteenth century, "nihilizing" most of their departments.
