(Keele). GALLIE, W.B. A New University : A.D. Lindsay and the Keele Experiment. London : Chatto & Windus, 1960. Pp (6),7-152. 8vo, black cloth. "A.D. Lindsay (Lord Lindsay of Birker) was widely recognized in the academic world as a distinguished Master of Balliol College, Oxford (1924-1949), and a astimulating thinker and writer on philosophical, political, economic and r eligious subjects. He was also the spiritual godfather as well as the firstPrincipal (1950-54) of the experimental University College of North Staffo rdshire, now generally known as Keele. What, in Lindsay's opinion, was the experiment all about? How did it come to be made? And how did it work out during the eighteen month's of the young College's existence that Lindsay lived to see? Professor Gallie, who knew Lindsay well for over twenty years and was the first professor to be selected for Keele, has answered many of these questions in a book which is not only a character study for a remarkably attractive and creative man, but a contribution to that currently most important and neglected of subjects, the philosophy of education. Professor Gallie maintains convincingly that Lindsay initiated at Keele something of far greater importance for educational theory and practice than has yet been generally recognized." - from the dj.
