About this product
- DescriptionThis work was born out of a concern that the advancement of society's underlying moral strength is becoming increasingly weaker. Due to this deficiency, there is a call to educators, particularly at the college and university levels, to give careful and collective attention to the three groundings that are consonant with well-functioning societies-morality, rationality, and personal responsibility. The book discusses the universitas model (the historic function of an advanced academic community) as a reference for dialogue and reasoning in the pursuit of moral excellence. Dr. Hostetter articulates that higher educational institutions should seek to understand and restore this model with the ultimate aim of formulating a meaningful institutional worldview. Deting entirety and signifying all together, universitas requires that a high measure of solidarity should be demonstrated. The work outlines potential steps and essential aspects of the universitas idea that institutions might consider useful.
