saving Humboldt's ideals

I was quite surprised to see a position paper put out by a group of 20 universities including Oxford and Cambridge, defending the traditional idealism of European universities, which goes back to a memo written by Wilhelm von Humboldt, against the current onslaught of efficient management and all that. My story about this is now out in Current Biology.

The paper is published on the LERU site.
