Knowledge Viewed in Relation to Learning (Discourse VI, excerpted from "The Idea of a University")
Newman, John Henry
Academic Questions, v17 n1 p7-22 Dec 2003
This selection from John Henry Newman is from a series of discourses he delivered in Dublin in 1852, later appearing in the first part if his classic work, "The Idea of a University." John Henry Newman's university has done its work when its charges can reach outward and grasp the truth. The process goes beyond communication of knowledge to represent an idea of the whole, a doctrine, and principles of thought and action that "leaven a dense mass of facts with the elastic force of reason." (Contains 4 notes.)
