The Concept of a University
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungTaking on the challenge of the postmodernists of politics, Minogue argues forcefully and persuasively that the current dominant philosophies of education rest upon a mistake. The Concept of a University traces many confusions imposed by political ideology to a failure to distinguish academic inquiry from other kinds of intellectual activity, such as journalism, religious proselytiing, and high quality propaganda. Minogue holds that where the university lacks a clear sense of the difference between the academic and the pragmatic, its vitality is sapped by conflicting purposes.
