The philosophy of higher education

Powell, John P.


This thesis is an examination of some of the concepts and theories which feature prominently in debates about the functions of the universities and the nature and purposes of higher education. In order to give the study some historical perspective and at the same time identify a number of the major issues, the first chapter briefly surveys the development of the idea of the university and of university education from its origins in the middle ages to the close of the nineteenth century.
