Volume 21, Number 3 (Spring 1981)
Best of the Bookman 7 August 2011
Universities: American, European, Third World
In this 1981 installment from our archives, the late historian Thomas Molnar assesses the state of the modern university. Don’t be misled by the innocuous title: Molnar looks at institutions around the world to illustrate his argument that modern education is now wholly separated from true scholarship.
Mere unthinking negative opposition to
the current of events, clutching in despair at what we still
retain, will not suffice in this age. A conservatism of instinct
must be reinforced by a conservatism of thought and imagination.
