Their reading is pragmatic and instrumental: the difference between what literary critic Frank Kermode calls “carnal reading” and “spiritual reading.”If we allow our offspring to believe carnal reading is all there is if we don’t open the door to spiritual reading, through an early insistence on discipline and practice we will have cheated them of an enjoyable, even ecstatic experience they would not otherwise encounter. And we will have deprived them of an elevating and enlightening experience that will enlarge them as people.

Universities and colleges in the United States have become “disturbingly” commercialised, according to a new analysis edited by an academic at the University of Bath, UK.Higher Education: Open for Business, edited by Christian Gilde, says that commerce has become too closely involved in academic research, classroom activities and college sports.”It is disturbing to see that today’s cafeteria conversation do not center around topics such as Shakespeare or international affairs.”Due to the overcommercialization of higher education, college and university students sadly start paying attention to issues such as the following: are we a Gateway or a Dell campus? Are we a Coca Cola or a Pepsi campus? Are we a Nike or an Adidas campus?”Mr Gilde said that “commercialism has gotten too close to certain aspects of academia” and he believed this was a “dangerous development”.”If universities morph, more and more, from knowledge seekers into profit seekers, we are faced with a development that will change the landscape of higher education.”In her paper, The Market of Higher Education, Professor Elizabeth Miller, of Boston College, says that there are 4,326 colleges and universities in the US, with 17.7 million students.”Students are affected by commercialization in a number of ways,” she says. “First, they are constantly exposed to advertising and marketing messages. These messages appear on billboards and flyers posted around the campus, the school newspaper, on products in the campus store, and in the dining halls.”Students may also be exposed to marketing messages through on campus promotions, direct mail, examples in their text books, and recruiters.”Second, students are affected by commercialization through a narrowing of choice options.
