The Public University in South Africa: Philosophical Remarks on the Notion of "Elitist Knowledge" Production
Waghid, Yusef
Perspectives in Education, v27 n3 p211-214 Sep 2009
In my remarks about elitist knowledge production, I firstly try to adjust the perspective from which the university could be analysed; I specifically explore the functions of the university in relation to Habermas's categorisation of knowledge. Secondly, with reference to Derrida's reflections on the university, I reformulate a conception of the responsible university. Thirdly, I link this perspective of the responsible university to my own institution's plea for a university of hope.
