Additional Responses to Hugh Heclo's "On Thinking Institutionally"
Lincoln, Timothy D.; Fennell, Robert C.
Teaching Theology & Religion, v14 n1 p25-33 Jan 2011
Issue 13:3 of this journal (July 2010) included a "Conversation" on Hugh Heclo's recent publication "On Thinking Institutionally" (Paradigm Publishers, 2008) with a book review by Robert Fennell and responses by Richard Ascough, Tat-siong Benny Liew, Michael McLain, and Lynne Westfield. Here we publish two additional responses to this same book. In the first essay Timothy D. Lincoln draws lessons from the specific "small world" of religion departments and theological schools. In the second essay Robert C. Fennell reminds us that we have an always-already-invested status within institutions. We should therefore think from the inside of institutions, to help shape them to express our highest callings. (Contains 1 footnote.)
