Abstract:
This work investigates the reasons for the influence of two rival nineteenth century ideologies on contemporary ideas of the university. Liberal Learning IS associated with learning for its own sake, scholastic control of academic standards, and personal freedom. Utilitarianism emphasises knowledge production for wealth creation, subject based degrees offered within faculties of learning and postgraduate studies.
