Knowledge in the Postmodern University.
Simpson, Evan
Educational Theory, v50 n2 p157-77 Spr 2000
It is essential for higher education to interpret its institutional goals. This essay facilitates that task by clarifying the intellectual rationale of the postmodern challenge, highlighting the success of that rationale, and arguing that the interrelated critiques of rationalism, realism, and foundationalism show that the modern university includes a contest between different theories of rational scholarly agreement.
