The question of what form of pedagogy should be used at university is a complex and important one. So too is the question of how the contemporary university should develop. In this book Monica McLean advances fresh and lucid arguments concerning both. Drawing on the theories of Jurgen Habermas, she demonstrates how these two apparently disparate questions are in fact closely linked. In the process McLean provides unique insights into the relationship between macro and micro issues in higher education.
