About the Author

Gordon Graham is Regius Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.


"Those who care about universities should thank Gordon Graham for doing what has needed doing so urgently." Philosophy "Graham has written an elegant and extraordinarily refreshing book, with no fudging of his own opinions and judgements... It deserves a very wide readership and will surely stand as a point of reference for years to come." -- Gordon Johnson Times Higher Education Supplement "'A short reflective treatise on British university education that deserves to be widely read... [I]ts appeal is universal and deserves the attention of a wide audience." Political Studies Review "'Though densely and cogently argued, this book is extremely readable and indeed deserves to be widely read." Philosophical Quarterly "The best discussion I know of on this question [what are universities for]." -- Alison Wolf Times Higher Education Supplement "This volume ought to be compulsory reading for every government minister or civil servant with responsibilities in this area." -- Margaret Atkins New Blackfriars "[Graham] offer[s] insights that could be useful in recapturing some autonomy and bringing renewed respect to universities." -- Patricia T. Ashton and Tesia Marshik Jr. PsycCritiques "Many of Graham's criticisms of current policy rhetoric are on the mark." -- Charles Thorpe Political Studies Review "'The institution of intellectual values' is before all else a rare and valuable normative statement, and should be read as such... a salutary contribution indeed." -- Andrew Kent Progress in Human Geography 32 (3)
