Intellectual Authority and Institutional Authority.
Collier, Charles W.
Journal of Legal Education, v42 n2 p151-85 Jun 1992
This essay examines the idea of intellectual authority as reflected in legal and literary theory and reviews empirical studies of effects of institutional authority on acceptance/rejection of papers by juried journals. It refutes ideas of Stanley Fish that an author's background (his/her "institutional authority") are relevant in evaluating the intellectual merit of a paper. (MSE)
