Barton, Colin C. – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
In the post-truth era, information is harder to trust than ever before.

Tomicic, Ana – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
While universities now lie between two philosophical poles -- idealism and utilitarianism -- the Humboldtian ideal primarily serves to give a humanist glaze to a technocratic discourse.
