The Philosophy of Higher Education. Revised. ASHE 1984 Annual Meeting Paper.
The history of the philosophy of higher education was studied. Examining descriptions of the field of higher education was one approach, along with computer searches. There appeared to be a gap in the study of higher education--the failure to study the history of philosophy of higher education. The problem seemed to be that scholars had not tried to build on their historical insights to develop a philosophical history to parallel their institutional and social histories. Examples of writings that have provided a history of some philosophical influences are cited. It was felt that a broader and deeper study of the philosophical writing in the history of higher education might help clarify current issues. In addition, an example of analytic philosophy, one of the newest ways of approaching philosophical problems, is included. A number of quotations from works are included. (SW)
