This is a revised and expanded version of the much praised short book Universities: The Recovery of An Idea. It contains chapters on the history of universities; the value of university education; the nature of research; the management and funding of universities plus additional essays on such subjects as human nature and the study of the humanities, interdisciplinary versus multidisciplinary study, information systems and the concept of a library, the prospects for e-learning, reforming universities, intellectual integrity and the realities of funding, and spiritual values and the knowledge economy.There is an old saying: a#39;If it isna#39;t broken, dona#39;t fix ita#39;. This seems so ... is plainly broken. But what about a tap that leaks justa little and only from time to time? ... The second problem with the a#39;dona#39;t fix what isna#39;t brokena#39; principle is more important.
