Universities have searched for truth over nearly a millennium. Maxwell Bennett recounts the history of this search during three of its most momentous periods in the 13th, 18th and 20th centuries, which helped fashion the idea of a university. He concludes with a cautionary assessment of whether universities, given their present level of material support, can reliably continue to protect and advance society.

Max Bennett AO is university chair and professor of neuroscience at the University of Sydney. He has carried out pioneering research on synapses, and on the history and philosophy of the neurosciences.
