Academic Solidarity: A Philosophical Account

In my project, I tackle the question of how, if at all, the commodity model of knowledge may be reconciled with a meaningful and relatable notion of the academic community. The aim is to reclaim the concept of solidarity for academia, and to offer a perspective that is firmly grounded in philosophical reflection, but that at the same time attests to the specific characteristics of neo-liberal higher education.
