John Henry Newman’s world classic, The Idea of University. This new edition is a faithful reproduction of Newman’s definitive text of 1889, being both a work of lierature and philosophy. The first half of the book opens with nine discourses on ‘University Teaching’ which were delivered as lectures in Dublin in 1852. The essays and lectures contained in the second half were addressed to academic staff and students before 1858.The two parts complement each other, forming a unified conceptual whole; the first presenting the theoretical vision, the definition; the second its practical application, its lived illustration.
