/Review: Toward a Philosophy of Higher Education: Contemporary Philosophical Proposals for the University, edited by Aaron Stoller and Eli Kramer
(Cham, Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018), 268 pages/

Editors Aaron Stoller and Eli Kramer have organized and edited a group of essays that include a variety of perspectives regarding the present problems and tensions that condition possible futures of higher education institutions. The primary aim in this work is to create a sustained discussion about higher education that will provide the basis for a radical reimagining of the role of higher education. In order to navigate this difficult terrain, Stoller and Kramer introduce readers to some of the historical background that have shaped relevant contemporary problems in institutions of higher education. In addition to providing some historical background, Stoller and Kramer also offer guidelines for how the deployment of our imaginative capacities ought to be directed as the processes of globalization, corporatization, and privatization (among others) unfold as significant influences on higher education.
