The Church, the University and Urban Society: A Problem in Power. Paper Number 1.
Palmer, Parker J.; Jacobson, Elden
This document, the first of seven essays, investigates the relationship of the church, the university and urban society. A description of the basic conceptual focus and theoretical framework of this 2-year project is presented. Urban society is defined in terms of power, and the role of church and university in it is viewed as essentially marginal unless and until they enter at the point of power. Varieties of power are assayed and strategies for their use are discussed. The essay forms a backdrop for much we have written elsewhere in this series. Related documents are HE 004 366, HE 004 355, and HE 004 367. (Author/MJM)
