Universities and the Good Society: The Moral Bases of Academic Professionalism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Nixon (professional education, Liverpool Hope U., UK) aims to describe the moral bases of academic professionalism. He first develops an understanding of the culture of academic professionalism focusing on the themes of academic professionalism as a changing profession, a learning profession, and a profession of values. He then focuses on truthfulness, respect, authenticity, and magnanimity as the goods of academic practice and the defining characteristics of academic professionalism in individual chapters. His final two chapters address the relational and institutional conditions necessary for the development of the described characteristics of academic professionalism.

Synopsis:

A good university is invariably assumed to be one which is managerially effective in terms of its economic efficiency, and is judged in terms of entrepreneurialism, self-promotion and competitive innovation. This book argues that in the majority of institutions, these goals are being pursued to the exclusion of academic excellence and public service. It proposes that there is a marked lack of intellectual leadership at senior management level within HE institutions and that academic workers must assume responsibility for the moral purposefulness of their institutions. This will not be a retreat into the old values of an elitist 'ivory tower', but a rejection of the current deeply stratified university system which prematurely selects students for differentiated institutional streams.
