Richard Sennet, The Craftsman, 2008 Tacit knowledge The workshop as metaphor Skills and craft about more than the ‘Skills agenda’ Support of ‘Craft’ as opportunity and obligation for education False opposition of physical and mental work
‘The University seems to Vic rather like a small city-state, an academic Vatican, from which he keeps his distance both intimidated by and disapproving of its air of privileged detachment from the vulgar, bustling industrial city in which it is embedded’ David Lodge, Nice Work,1989 p 29
‘Universities are the cathedrals of the modern age. The trouble is ordinary people don’t understand what they’re about, and the Universities don’t really bother to explain themselves to the community. We have an open day once a year. Every day ought to be an open day. The campus..ought to be swarming with local people doing part-time courses – using the library, using the laboratories, going to lectures...everything.’ David Lodge, Nice Work, 1989, p 241
