Postmodernism and Higher Education.
Bloland, Harland G.
Journal of Higher Education, v66 n5 p521-59 Sep-Oct 1995
The concepts of four poststructuralist/postmodern authors are examined in terms of their implications for higher education and the academy's values of merit, community, and autonomy. Twelve reactions to postmodern thought are then presented. A summary of postmodernism's legacy for higher education concludes the discussion. (Author/MSE)
