Professor Paul Gibbs has been honoured by the Russian Journal ‘Theoretical Research’ as a modern heir to Newman and Mill, in his prolific contribution to understanding the university as an institution that offers a special mode of human existence. To quote a translation, the journal suggests:
Newman and Mill have many modern heirs who are trying to show that the university, first of all, supports a special “mode” of human existence, and then performs all its other functions. Perhaps the most famous of these is the British educational philosopher, Paul Gibbs.
Professor Gibbs continues to bring these world-renowned insights on higher education into his teaching on the MA Higher Education, which he founded soon after arriving at Middlesex University. To find out more about the MA, visit the website.
