Cardinal John Henry Newman was a major figure in the Oxford Movement, a response by the members of the Church of England to a perceived attack by the reforming Whig administration who had already legislated a restructuring of the Church of Ireland. Members of the Oxford Movement feared the secular appropriation of ecclesiastical property and moved to assert their religious authority by returning the church to its Catholic origins. In 1854 John Henry Newman became the Rector of what would become University College, Dublin, a position he would remain in for four years. Based on his experiences as the leader of an educational institution he would publish a volume of lectures explaining his philosophy of education entitled "The Idea of a University." That work which is presented here is an early document of ideas around University education from the firsthand perspective of a man who had a hand in creating one. Religious and educational scholars alike will find much interest in this treatise by one of the most prominent of all religious literary figures.

Without any indication that this was a mere excerpt, I bought this and encouraged my 17 students also to purchase it. I assumed that spending eight dollars meant that we were getting the full book. I should have done more research. While Newman's ideas and writing are insightful and enriching, this is just a small and oddly-selected sanpling of his lectures on the aims and theory of university education. Make sure you buy the full-length version, not this one.

It was a great book and the ideas expressed are important and critical ideas to all of Christian faith and I think is an extremely amazing book. The context is applicable and very easy to see the value of. Highly recommend this book!

Great, great book. The ideas that Newman discusses have definitely shaped our universities and need to continue to shape our universities. This is a classic book for those asking, "How should one do education?"

Prior to reading this tasty work I had no idea Cardinal Newman was so prescient, such a brilliant intellect. As one reads, one has a new appreciation for the cultural drift that has harmed our society.
