附註 Includes bibliographical references and index
This book delivers a damning criticism of the contemporary University system. It argues that the University has become politicised - that its primary purpose has shifted from education to the advancement of market-fundamentalist capital, an ideology that paints society as a war of all against all for individual financial gain. Against this, the book calls for a reconfiguration of the purpose of the University. It evokes the institution's wider ambitions and purposes: extending the range of human possibilities, seeking global justice and promoting democracy. Nothing less than ecological and human survival is at stake. Written by a senior academic and leading opponent of the modern University regime, this book exposes a troubling present while remaining optimistic for the future
