Morality, Inquiry, and the University
Mourad, Roger P.
Educational Forum, v80 n3 p324-338 2016
Given that human suffering persists globally on a massive scale, are scholars doing all they ought to be in the pursuit of knowledge? To explore this question, the author analyzes works by Alasdair MacIntyre, Nicholas Maxwell, and Bill Readings. Based on implications derived from their moral critiques of higher education, an alternative, broadened conception of inquiry is proposed that would include explicit consideration and development of values based on dialogue and debate.
