In this full-blooded attack on the institutions of higher education, Sinéad Murphy shows the neoliberal university for what it really is: a zombie institution, churning out generations of the thinking dead.

What if we have lost the ability to think straight? And what if this is why the shocking injustices of contemporary life go unchallenged in spite of being widely acknowledged? And what if the institution that is supposed to help us to think is in on the act? 

This is the thesis put forward by Zombie University, which shows the modern university as the fulcrum of our societies’ mode of control, tempting more and more young people to rituals of education that work to keep us down rather than raise us up.
Sinéad Murphy teaches philosophy at Newcastle University. She is the author of three other books: Effective History (Northwestern, 2010), The Art Kettle (Zero, 2012), and The Jane Austen Rules (Melville House, 2014).
