Beyond the Ivory Tower
Harvard University Press, 1982 - 318 էջ
Analyzing the reciprocal responsibilities of the universities and the public and the basis of their mutual trust, Bok examines the configurations of institutional power and conflict. Beginning with the traditional values of academic freedom, institutional autonomy and political neutrality, he considers how the university's desire for autonomy can be reconciled with the legitimate demands of state and society. He discusses proposals for using academic resources to address issues such as racial inequality, the decline of ethical standards, the need for technological innovation and the risks of scientific research. Also suggests that universities attack problems in social justice through voting stock, boycotting campaigns and taking formal stands on controversial public issues.
