The Church, the University and Urban Society: Implications for the University. Paper Number 3.
Jacobson, Elden; Palmer, Parker J.
This essay is the third of seven papers designed to investigate the relationship of the church, the university, and urban society. This essay explores the conceptual, disciplinary basis of the modern university. It is concluded that the changing nature of social reality is increasingly undermining fragmented disciplinary inquiry, which in turn is and will continue to constitute the universities real "irrelevance." It is noted that alternatives to the university are being created. Related documents are HE 004 367, HE 004 366, and HE 004 356. (Author/MJM)
