Homicides in Higher Education: Some Reflections on the Moral Mission of the University
Wood, Peter
Academic Questions, v20 n4 p277-294 Dec 2007
This essay on the ethical mission of the university explores extremes of anti-social behavior, visiting numerous crime scenes before concluding that contemporary higher education has lost the capacity--and even the language--for taking character development seriously. In his attempt to determine whether coincidently traditional-liberationist-diversiphilic-apathetic colleges can morally improve their charges, Peter Wood collects a wrenching compendium of violent academic mayhem. (Contains 42 footnotes.)
