University Design. The Ends of Knowledge. David J. Staley‪.‬ IngenioUs

    • Entrepreneurship

In his latest ⁠IngenioUs University Design blog⁠ article, ⁠David J. Staley ⁠reviews a new, provocative collection of essays, edited by Seth Rudy and Rachael Scarborough King, entitled ⁠The Ends of Knowledge: Outcomes and Endpoints Across the Arts and Sciences ⁠(2023). As others have pointed out, 'this is a book about why we do what we do, and how we might know when we are done.' Given the current higher ed landscape where “humanities scholars, social scientists, and natural scientists [are] all forced to defend their work, from accusations of the ‘hoax’ of climate change to assumptions of the ‘usefulness’ of a humanities degree," this book and Staley's article have particular relevance.
