Abstract

Excerpt

As mentioned in a recent review of The New Idea of a University by Duke Maskell and Ian Robinson on this web site, recent years has seen the development of somewhat of a publishing industry oriented around the state of the academy. Often these books take the form of strident polemics against what they see as one misguided educational ideology or another. Universities: The Recovery of an Idea by Gordon Graham does not take such a form. Universities presents a thoughtful, sustained,
and coherent argument, something one would expect from a trained philosopher. In fact, Graham identifies his work as "an exercise in two branches of philosophy's philosophy of education and applied philosophy" (3).
