Knowledge must have some special importance for the American mind. But what is its value? Why do we seek knowledge? What is its utility? We do not seem to have reached any general agreement about the answer to the question. This book presents an answer by John Henry Newman, first made in a series of lectures over a hundred years ago, and later published in a book that has since become a literary and educational classic. The Idea of a University was composed of two main sections, the first of which was entitled "University Teaching", and the second, "University Subjects". In the first section of the book Newman developed the essential outline of his views on university education. Of the nine lectures which made up this first section of the book, the last four are reprinted here, under a new title, The Uses of Knowledge.
