The System and Its Consequences.
Adler, Jacob H.
ADE Bulletin, n18 p15-21 Sep 1968
A discussion of the relationship of scholarship to teaching begins with an examination of what "Publish or Perish" does and does not mean in the English profession. The reasons for publishing and the consideration scholarship is given for salary increases and promotions are discussed. One of several conclusions made is that in spite of certain justifiable criticisms, the demand for scholarship is legitimate because it can make good teachers better and can generate an intellectual atmosphere which is essential to departments offering Ph.D. programs.
