|Title:||The Contemporary University and its Cultured Despisers||Authors:||Casey, Gerard||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4990||Date:||Mar-2012||Abstract:||Once upon a time, not so long ago, there were no universities. You could travel wherever your fancy took you and stumble upon kings and courts, soldiers, churches (some with little schools attached), towns, merchants, farmers, in fact, all manner of things- but no universities. Then, in a very short period of time and in different places - Paris, Bologna, Oxford- and no one knows quite how or why, the university appeared; chaotically, anarchically, without any grand plan or design, with its subsequent organisation by authorities merely tidying up a pre-existent emergent order (see Knowles 1962).||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Glasnevin Publishing||Copyright (published version):||2012 Brendan Walsh||Keywords:||Institution;Education;Governance||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Brendan Walsh (ed.).
