The Future of the Humanities.
Kaufmann, Walter
The problems of today's system of higher education are evaluated by exploring the failure of colleges and universities to truly educate to cope with our changing world and by explaining why the prospects for doctoral graduates in the arts and humanities are dismal. After analyzing four kinds of minds, the author shows in detail what is wrong with the ways the classics are read; discusses book reviewing, translating, and editing; looks at the place of religion in higher education; and looks at curricula. The primary focus is on "humanity" in education. (MSE)
