Summary
This is a critical introduction to the educational thought of F. R. Leavis (1895â1978), the greatest English literary critic of the twentieth century, providing the first in-depth examination of Leavisâs ideas in relation to contemporary mass higher education. During the course of a long, prolific and controversial academic career, which saw him take issue with figures such as Wittgenstein, T. S. Eliot and C. P. Snow, Leavis became one of the most articulate advocates for the idea of the university as âa centre of consciousness and human responsibilityâ in the face of what he saw as the relentless technological drive of civilisation. With the journal Scrutiny which he co-founded, as well as his critical writings, Leavis became a decisive influence on generations of teachers in Britain and overseas. Widely misrepresented as narrowly elitist, his ideas about âthe creative universityâ, with their radical, student-centred approach to teaching, constitute a powerful resource for a higher education system grappling with the contradictory demands of continuity and change. Based on original research, the study provides an overview of Leavisâs life, work and heritage and his educational world view, and a comprehensive exploration of Leavisâs pedagogy from theoretical and practical perspectives. It also includes a first-hand account by the author of being taught by Leavis in person
