In the age of global capitalism, what is the purpose and impact of the university? Does the university make society better and should this be its role? Or do contemporary structures and imperatives make it harder for graduates to realize a satisfied human life? This book locates the university at the heart of contemporary debates about social justice, cosmopolitanism, global citizenship and human well-being, to examine whether modern institutions have lost touch with humanist origins. In the context of deep anxieties regarding the relationship between education and capitalism, and between education and Eurocentricism, this book suggests that there is a pressing need to rethink the dimensions of the university around three core themes: freedom, globality, and happiness. It discusses cutting edge, critical scholarship from Deleuze and Guatarri, Zizek and Weber to argue that the university must not shrink from its responsibilities as a major institution in the global politics of knowledge. This timely text presents an ethical and political challenge to higher education as an industry today.
