The Universities, the Social Sciences, and Liberal Democracy.
Shils, Edward
Interchange, v23 n1-2 p183-223 1992
The article traces the history of the social sciences and shows how they developed their modern form in Western universities. It argues that they are undermining rather than supporting democratic order and suggests that universities, with their commitment to truth and freedom of thought, can transform such disciplines into worthwhile entities.
