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 and the Public Good: Imagining the University – Jon Nixon - Bloomsbury Academic, 2012 – 176 pages.

The author proposed to see the university today “re-imagined as a social, civic and cosmopolitan good that is central to the well-being of civil society and its citizens.”

What constitutes the public good in a highly individualistic, consumerist and privatized society?

The global financial crisis of 2008 revealed the extent to which the public realm had been eroded over the last thirty years and the inroads that privatization and commercialization have made into the higher education sector. This book explores the institutional and sector-wide implications of the financial crisis for higher education; and the lessons to be learnt from that crisis and its aftermath for the university sector as a whole.

Jon Nixon argues that the university now has to be re-imagined as a social, civic and cosmopolitan good that is central to the well-being of civil society and its citizens. Key chapters focus on capability, reasoning and purposefulness as the common resources of higher education. The book highlights the urgent need for sector-wide planning and collaboration, the development of a public culture across institutions, and a broadening of the higher education curriculum.

Higher Education and the Public Good points a way forward to the new and emergent civic and cosmopolitan spaces of learning.

Review

"'Beautifully written, of wide scope and offering a much needed and humane vision of higher education as serving the public good - it is difficult to imagine a better book on the university than this. If only every university vice-chancellor and principal would pay it at least some attention.' (Ron Barnett, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education and Consultant, Institute of Education, University of London, UK) 'In this excellent book, Jon Nixon salvages higher education from the wreckage wrought by three decades of commercialisation, commodification, competition and classification. He articulates a powerful, cogent and realisable vision of higher education as a public good - a site for the development of human capability, reason and purpose, existing within and contributing to the social interconnectivities of the res publica and cosmopolis.' (Bob Adamson, Head, Dept of International Education & Lifelong Learning, Hong Kong Institute of Education, Hong Kong)"
