One Hundred Semesters : My Adventures As Student, Professor, and University President, and What I Learned Along the Way by William M Chace( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "One Hundred Semesters", William Chace mixes incisive analysis with memoir to create an illuminating picture of the evolution of American higher education over the past half century. Chace follows his own journey from undergraduate education at Haverford College to teaching at Stillman, a traditionally African-American college in Alabama, in the 1960s, to his days as a professor at Stanford and his appointment as president of two very different institutions--Wesleyan University and Emory University. Chace takes us with him through his decades in education--his expulsion from college, his boredom and confusion as a graduate student during the Free Speech movement at Berkeley, and his involvement in three contentious cases at Stanford: on tenure, curriculum, and academic freedom. When readers follow Chace on his trip to jail after he joins Stillman students in a civil rights protest, it is clear that the ideas he presents are born of experience, not preached from an ivory tower. The book brings the reader into both the classroom and the administrative office, portraying the unique importance of the former and the peculiar rituals, rewards, and difficulties of the latter. Although Chace sees much to lament about American higher education--spiraling costs, increased consumerism, overly aggressive institutional self-promotion and marketing, the corruption of intercollegiate sports, and the melancholy state of the humanities--he finds more to praise. He points in particular to its strength and vitality, suggesting that this can be sustained if higher education remains true to its purpose: providing a humane and necessary education, inside the classroom and out, for America's future generations

Intelligence, Artificial and Otherwise by William M Chace( )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

I rise now to speak with the assumption that all of you know very well what I am going to say. I am the humanist here, the professor of English. We humanists, when asked to speak on questions of science and technology, are notorious for offering an embarrassed and ignorant respect toward those matters, a respect, however, which can all too quickly degenerate into insolent condescension. Face to face with the reality of computer technology, say, or with "artificial intelligence," we humanists are the kind of soreheads who compulsively point out that human beings aren't machines, that computers will never possess the uniquely human powers of intuition and common sense, and that we smelly, hairy and other wise organic people are simply more interesting, more clever and more mysterious than electricpowered, binary-formatted, digital computers with their tidy little green phosphorescent screens. So now you know what I'm going to say, or at least part of it. For, to be even more candid with you this morning, I want to go on to say that while I do believe many of the things that we humanists are reputed to believe, I also happen to believe that humanists are wrong, and very foolish, to fear computers. But they are also wrong, to underestimate the power of those computers and their important utility in the world that is now ours and the word that we will soon be turning over to our descendents
