The nine essays in the volume offer reflections on the role of the various disciplines, the activities of scholars, and the mission of the universities. One of the fundamental arguments in the book is that the diversity of our experience must be manifested in the diversity of our conversation. It addresses the challenges facing the humanities and suggests changes with far-reaching outcomes.
