Enlightenment and University.
Davies, Martin L.
Higher Education Review, v34 n3 p53-70 Sum 2002
Explores what happens to knowledge in corporate universities operating as knowledge producers in a knowledge economy, asserting that current discussions about higher education forget that the university functions as a custodian of knowledge. Uses principles of the Enlightenment to show that the knowledge needed to maintain the knowledge system contrasts sharply with current instrumental practices. (EV)
