The growth of American universities has outstripped private resources and forced them to rely increasingly on public funds, especially federal funds. Carl Kaysen asserts that the basis on which the growing public support has been given in recent years does not correspond to what the universities are actually doing, and he surmises that the nature of our governmental processes is such that a discrepancy of this sort cannot long persist. He examines the justification for public support of science and learning and he considers the intellectual and political limits of these justifications. Are they right? To whom do they appeal, and how powerfully?

Originally published in 1969.
