Irish Universities in the Knowledge Society: Society's Sentinels and the Citizen's vade mecum.
Downes, Martin
This is not an attempt to explore what the proper core role of universities should be through the insights o f educators and of the great liberal traditions to which many subscribe, precious and excellent though they may be. Instead, this is an attempt to explore the essential requirements o f society from universities, requirements that are necessarily implicit in the currently conventional vision of our future as a technically and economically advanced economy in an even more rapidly changing world, the Knowledge Society. If these two approaches tend to converge in their findings then we must think that the role of universities is made so much the clearer.
