Views from the Ivory Tower


“Views from the Ivory Tower”  is a new Open Inquiry Archive section, envisioned as a series of white papers and position papers that are personal essays and reflections on the state of higher education today, from the perspectives of academics themselves.

The views and opinions expressed in this series are those of the respective author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of Open inquiry Archive or its editors.

As always, we welcome and encourage thoughtful discussion and responses (as outlined here). Please contact the Editors with ideas or proposals for future installments.


As the first contribution to “Views from the Ivory Tower,” we present David Boffa’s “On Not Heeding the Warnings of Plato: Why the Internet Doesn’t Have to Mean the Death of Higher Education.” Access the full-text essay here.
