Toward an Ethic of Higher Education

Toward an Ethic of Higher Education

by Mortimer R. Kadish

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kadish (philosophy, Case Western Univ.) argues that the mission of higher education should include the development of ethical individuals who can actively participate in the fast-changing and interconnected worlds of today and tomorrow. He rejects the notion that the purpose of higher education should be to mollycoddle the privileged class and produce graduates for the market economy. Instead, he asserts that the university should be more involved with real life through active learning experiences. Graduates with ethics, Kadish believes, are more important to society than a passel of cultured bodies or technological automatons. This book, while having a different intent, is a good corollary to Derek Bok's Universities and the Future of America ( LJ 9/1/90). This is not a volume that will be easily understood by all; it is intended for educated policy makers, scholars both within and without academia, professors and advanced graduate students of higher education.-- Scott Johnson, Meridian Community Coll. Lib., Miss.
