Reading Questions #19  MacInyre – “The Very Idea of a University” 1. This lecture presupposes some familiarity with John Henry Cardinal Newman’s  famous 19 th  century lectures, “The Idea of a University.”  MacIntyre begins by noting  that Newman’s critics hold Newman’s proposal is not so much false as it is irrelevant  (347).  Explain. 2. What is the first matter on which what Newman says is taken (by his critics) to be at  once false and irrelevant? (347-8) 3. What is the second matter on which what Newman says is taken (by his critics) to be  at once false and irrelevant? (348-50) 4. What is the third matter on which what Newman says is taken (by his critics) to be  at once false and irrelevant? (350) 5. What does MacIntyre mean by an Aristotelean conception of practical reason? (351)  How does he weave this together with Newman’s idea of the university? (351-53)
