Future Research on Values in Higher Education

(p.156) Nine Conclusion
The Aims of Higher Education

Harry Brighouse

Michael McPherson

University of Chicago Press

In the conclusion of this volume, the editors identify further questions on the topic of higher education that could benefit from careful, philosophical treatment. The authors call for further intellectual scrutiny of topics like the aims of education, the nature of the occupation of being a professor, the emergence of online learning, and the ethics of teaching about questions of values. They also note the need to attend to thus-relatively neglected topics like the doctrine of in loco parentis, the ethics of selecting research topics, and affirmative action for boys.

Keywords:   online learning, professional ethics, in loco parentis, affirmative action, research ethics
