Description

Established in 1949, the University of Notre Dame Press is the largest Catholic university press in the world, and a scholarly publisher of distinguished books in a number of academic disciplines. The Press publishes approximately fifty books annually and maintains a robust backlist in print. Located on the University of Notre Dame campus, the Press is a publishing partner with numerous university departments, programs, centers, and institutes. Through these collaborations, the Press extends the reach and reputation of the University while fulfilling its mission to advance intellectual exploration and knowledge. The Press’s publications are overseen by an editorial board comprised of scholars from a variety of university departments. New titles are approved by the board after a rigorous process of peer review.

The Notre Dame Press Collection is a collaboration with the University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Libraries to make UNDP backlist titles available through CurateND, the Libraries’ institutional repository. The Notre Dame Press Collection will allow members of the broader Notre Dame community to have free access to all the books available in the collection. The collection will continue to expand as more backlist titles are digitized and through the publication of new books. This collection demonstrates the mutual commitment of UNDP and the Hesburgh Libraries to disseminate innovative, influential, and enduring scholarship to the broadest possible audience.

    Education, Humanistic--United States, Education, Higher--United States, Universities and colleges--United States--Administration
    Abstract:

    In Realizing the Distinctive University: Vision and Values, Strategy and Culture, Mark William Roche changes the terms of the debate about American higher education. A former dean of the College of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame, Roche argues for the importance of an institutional vision, not simply a brand, and while he extols the value of entrepreneurship, he defines it in contrast to the corporate drive toward commercialization and demands for business management models…

  • Author(s):
    Maurice Blondel
    Subject(s):
    Act (Philosophy), Ethics, Life
    Abstract:

    Action was once a prominent theme in philosophical reflection. It figured prominently in Aristotelian philosophy, and the medieval Scholastics built some of their key adages around it. But by the time Maurice Blondel came to focus on it for his own philosophical reflection, it had all but disappeared from the philosophical vocabulary. It is no longer possible or legitimate to ignore action in philosophy as it was in France when Blondel appeared on the scene in 1882, when at the age of 21 he f…

    Thomas A. Lewis
    Subject(s):
    Religion--Philosophy, Ethics, Liberty, Tradition (Philosophy), Philosophical anthropology
    Abstract:

    Freedom and Tradition in Hegel stands at the intersection of three vital currents in contemporary ethics: debates over philosophical anthropology and its significance for ethics, reevaluations of tradition and modernity, and a resurgence of interest in Hegel. Thomas A. Lewis engages these three streams of thought in light of Hegel’s recently published Vorlesungen über die Philosophie des Geistes. Drawing extensively on these lectures, Lewis addresses an important lacuna in Hegelian scho…
