The Radicalism of the Liberal Arts Tradition.
Lears, Jackson
Academe, v89 n1 p23-27 Jan-Feb 2003
Discusses the threat to intellectual freedom in the academy from market-driven managerial influence, the impulse to subject universities to quantitative standards of efficiency and productivity, to turn knowledge into a commodity, and to transform open sites of inquiry into corporate research laboratories and job-training centers. Calls for the reassertion of the radicalism of the liberal arts tradition. (EV)
