Freedom, Coercion, Authority.
Bellah, Robert N.
Academe, v85 n1 p16-21 Jan-Feb 1999
Despite much talk about balancing freedom and responsibility in higher education, a more appropriate pairing is of freedom with authority. The concept of responsibility has become problematic, and educators have lost the ability to speak with authority. Although we have come to identify freedom with the free market, it is the bottom line which has come to dominate decision making. (MSE)
