This chapter reviews the book The ‘Making of Men’. The Idea and reality of Newman’s university in Oxford and Dublin (2014), by Paul Schrimpton. The book focuses on the life of John Henry, Cardinal Newman, and is divided into three parts. The first deals with the early years of Newman’s life and provides background for the intellectual and theological bases of his mature thinking. The second part is an account of Newman’s work, including his everyday work, of building and administering a university in Ireland. In the third and final part of the book, Schrimpton criticises universities and higher education in general by deploring many of the educational developments that have pushed contemporary universities away from a commitment to liberal education as character formation.

Keywords:   university, Paul Schrimpton, John Henry, Cardinal Newman, Ireland, higher education, liberal education, character formation
