The Academy's Freedom, The Academy's Burden.
Connolly, John M.
Thought & Action, v16 n1 p69-82 Sum 2000
This essay examines the origins of academic freedom in the nation's higher education institutions and explores the current debate about academic freedom. It suggests that postmodernist thinking that questions the existence of any truth may be a threat to the academic freedom valued by the professoriate, who are described as a "quarrel of philosophers."
