Shifting intellectual values and altered constructions of knowledge

"Massification is not heading straight to a Brave New or a Big Bad World; its consequences are ambiguous. To explain these trends solely in socio-economic, political and organisational terms as is generally the case, leads to a failure to recognise their complexity and inherent ambiguity. Rarely are they examined in relation to shifting intellectual values and altered constructions of knowledge."

Gibbons et al, p.81
