Academic Freedom Is Not a Divine Right
Fish, Stanley
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n2 pB10 Sep 2008
Is academic freedom a philosophical concept tied to larger concepts of individual dignity and autonomy, or is it a guild concept developed in an effort to insulate the enterprise from the threat of a hostile takeover? In this article, the author contends that academic freedom is a professional requirement, not a divine right. It should be advanced and limited accordingly.
