Even though Levi was preoccupied with the humanities ‘identity crisis’ Margolis suggests that he was one of those rarer academics that sat well between the natural and social sciences The Changing Landscape 29 and the liberal arts, due to the belief that language is ‘the indispensable medium within which we all move and breathe’ (Levi 1970). In Chapters 4 and 5 we explore some of the complexities of the behaviour of the individual and the culture of the institution in which they reside. We suggest that a study of commonality and co-production can help to uncover new practices that in turn may help academics to overcome the barriers precipitated by tradition.

These challenges are not as clear-cut as this may first seem. As a journalist at that time notes: A race that knew nothing but science and its practical application would, if left to itself, become as soulless and mechanical as the formulas that it invented and the engines it created; just as a race that knew and cared for nothing but the humanities would end its life in dreams or some other cloister of the mind. (The Times 1955) In this continued debate many thought the critique would enable both camps to conquer their differences rather than fuel their capacity to remain polarised.

They have made great strides into technological advancements, patents and the pursuit of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), and are noted for bringing the ‘knowledge economy’ in line with the economy at large. For universities, this has meant that we are beginning to see a shift from a grant to an exchange economy in Higher Education. This has required new institutional orderings and modified academic regimes that govern and reward entrepreneurialism. (Etzkowitz, Webster, Gebhardt & Cantisano Terra 2000) At this point in the recent history of the entrepreneurial university, the role of the arts and humanities in the wider economy is often overlooked, particularly where a discipline has seemingly little resonance in an applied setting, and demonstrates little or no influence upon industry investment or government policy.
