Destroying the Gift: Rationalising Research in the Humanities.
Mathews, Freya
Australian Universities' Review, v33 n1-2 p19-22 1991
Limitations of the market-economy model for organizing research in certain areas of knowledge, particularly the humanities, are discussed. A perspective in which knowledge is treated as a gift to society rather than a free-market commodity is outlined, and it is concluded that humanities and other research should be organized accordingly.
