The Liberal Arts in a Time of Crisis

Synopsis

Today there is fresh urgency to reexamine the mission of higher education. This book is concerned with the dilemma faced as a result of a new emphasis on developing useful knowledge and marketable skills at the expense of nurturing critically aware and intellectually able citizens through a liberal arts tradition. These studies by experts in the field analyze the situation and offer models for solutions. The book contends that the attempt by academic administrators to resolve the current intertwined crises of finance, governance and surplus labor (in the liberal arts) has provoked this crisis in curriculum content and sparked heated debate on the issues.
