On the meaning of the university by Sterling M McMurrin( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1994 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The meaning of education is addressed in this book of philosophical essays by seven authors. Focus is on education in the context of the issues that currently confront students, teachers, educational institutions, and people concerned with the quality of contemporary life. The volume examines the cultural foundations of society and finds the meaning of a university in knowledge, its intrinsic value and its uses, and in reason and reasonableness. "Reconciliation of Tradition and Modernity in Universities," by Lord Eric Ashby, confronts one of the decisive problems that education generates as it attempts to move into new territory while preserving the authentic values of the past. In "Democracy and Distinction in American Education," Brand Blanshard treats another basic dilemma: the apparent conflict of the ideal of democracy with the ideal of individual distinction. In "The Individual and Society," John Gardner examines the university's role in achieving both individuality and strength in social institutions. T.R. McConnell deals with the question: Do we have a "Surfeit or Dearth of Highly Educated People?" Mina Rees in her essay, "The Ivory Tower and the Marketplace," sorts out the questions that must be asked by all educators who seriously believe that the university of the coming decades must be responsive to the practical interests of society while preserving its task as creator of knowledge and wisdom. In "Forces for Change in American Higher Education," David Pierpont Gardner argues that the university of the future must accommodate a variety of forms and structures. The introductory essay suggests that the philosophy of education is a function of the value structure of the culture. (Lbh)

The structure of higher education: a world view by Eric Ashby( Book )

10 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains an essay presented at the 2nd International Conference on Higher Education held at the University of Lancaster in England. The conference concentrated on the implications of mass higher education in the world. It is clear that many countries' education systems will have to change to undertake mass higher education successfully. This change will be implemented by the three main environmental forces acting on higher education: customer demand, manpower needs, and patron's influence. However, one of the most important characteristics of the system of mass higher education is that of offering opportunities for the intellect to be stretched to its capacities. The skill of working with people should be emphasized in mass higher education by giving lectures on noncognitive affective approaches to experience. Finally, there is a need in higher education to help people to learn the art of decisionmaking that includes scientific data, estimates of practicality, and a framework of ethical principles. To achieve this however, part-time teachers must be brought in from the world of decisionmaking to the world of the academic. (Author/PG)
