Originally published as two sections, the first in 1853 consisting of nine lectures entitled Discourses on University Education, and a second volume entitled Lectures and Essays on University Subjects, published in 1858, The Idea of a University is an enduring masterpiece by a great intellect on the subject of higher education. The insight and penetration of this work are such that no theory of education can be complete that does not grant it significant weight and deliberation. Newman defends his position that the duty of a university is instruction rather than research and to train the mind rather than to diffuse knowledge. He defends theological teaching and the tutorial system.
