The Physical University: Contours of space and place in higher education

The Physical University: Contours of space and place in higher education Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present an extended book review of “The Physical University”. Design/methodology/approach – This article takes the form of a literature review focusing on one title. Findings – This is an uneven collection of fragments of conventional late twentieth-century thinking about the physical campus. The future of the physical university, the campus is in doubt. Yet, only two of the dozen authors engage in this existential question. Originality/value – The collection of articles ranges from purely philosophical to moderately practical. It is a poor summary of current thought and offers little guidance for dealing with the evolving future of the physical university. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png On the Horizon Emerald Publishing
