About this product
- DescriptionTaking on the challenge of the postmodernists of politics, Kenneth Migue argues forcefully and persuasively that the current dominant philosophies of education rest upon a mistake. The fashionable belief that the university is society's handmaiden is confronted by a view of the university as an institution with an independent vitality and function. Migue at one and the same time reminds us of the sources of admiration for university life in the medieval world, and how it rested squarely on its essential automy from the very social pressures that have come to defi ne the modern university.
