The condition of the academic profession today is examined with a focus on the teaching and research functions in the academy.
The diverse settings in which academics work are considered in three parts:
- the foundations of the academic profession (the evolution of institutions; the elaboration of disciplines; and the open system);
- the dimensions of academic professionalism (the imperatives of academic work; the enclosures of culture; the grip of authority; the promises of career; and the ties of association);
- the logic of the profession.

Three judgments on the logic of the academic profession in America deal with:
- the hegemony of subjects;
- the dual commitment of academics to subjects and institutions, which greatly strengthens centrifugal forces in the profession;
- the nature of research and teaching as human activities that promote the tendency for academic life to remain a calling.
