关于我

有时我喜欢安静,有时我喜欢热闹。 有时我喜欢加入人群,有时我喜欢远离他们,独自呆着。 冬天我渴望阳光,夏天我盼望下雪。 春去秋来,不变的是我的学术信仰、志向和兴趣。一直思考着:什么是语用?为什么要研究语用?怎样研究语用?研究语用需要具备哪些素质?谁在研究语用?语用研究的走势如何?存在哪些问题?等等。 我深信“宁静”方可“致远”的道理,努力走向这种境界。 求学、求真的路上,深深领悟到过程决定结果,过程大于结果,远远大于结果。

Higher Education as a Public Good: Critical Perspectives on Theory, Policy and Practice (Global Studies in Education) 1st Edition

by Ourania Filippakou (Editor), Gareth Williams (Editor)

Higher education is likely to involve the majority of people at some time in their lives in the twenty-first century. The main drivers of expansion in the previous century were a belief that widening access promotes social equity and the advance of knowledge as the main factor underpinning economic success for individuals and societies. However, universal higher education in rapidly changing economies raises many questions that have been inadequately treated by previous authors. This volume focuses on the question of whether it is appropriate and inevitable that higher education systems are becoming so large and so diverse that the only realistic way they can be analysed is as aggregates of market-like transactions. Most of the authors are not satisfied with this conclusion, but they recognise, from several disciplinary perspectives, that it is no longer possible to take it for granted that higher education is intrinsically a public good. Are there convincing alternatives?

Review

?Perhaps never before has the need to argue the case for higher education to be regarded as a public good been more apparent. But the public good can be a contested concept. The great virtue of this book is that it describes itself as a ‘conversation’ about the public good and it brings together distinguished contributors who offer contrasting sets of views on the subject. This is a book for our times and should be read by anyone interested in the question what universities are for or why their function is not just to provide higher education as a marketable commodity.? (Michael Shattock, Visiting Professor, Centre for Higher Education Studies, Institute of Education; Author, ‘Making Policy in British Higher Education 1945-2011’)
?The extent to which higher education is a private or a public good goes to the heart of what it means to be a university. It is both a philosophical and very practical matter. The challenges in interpreting the responsibilities and opportunities afforded by the constantly shifting nature of the private-public dynamic is reflected in this excellent and thought-provoking collection of papers presented by a group of leading thinkers and policy analysts. The book provides important new insights into the way this key issue is understood in an age characterized by a fuzzying divide between ‘private’ and ‘public’ interest. ‘Higher Education as a Public Good’ will help to inform and revitalize debate about the purposes and multiple identities of higher education.? (Bruce Macfarlane, Professor of Higher Education, University of Southampton)
