Product Description

Since its publication almost 150 years ago, this book has had an extraordinary influence on the shaping and goals of higher education. The issues that John Henry Newman raised--the place of religion and moral values in the university setting, the competing claims of liberal and professional education, the character of the academic community, the cultural role of literature, the relation of religion and science--have provoked discussion from Newman's time to our own. This edition includes the full text of the original 1852 publication and four selections from the subsequently added "University Subjects," together with five essays by leading scholars that explore the background and the present-day relevance of Newman's themes.
