The Intellectual Properties of Learning: A Prehistory from Saint Jerome to John Locke

Providing a sweeping millennium-plus history of the learned book in the West, John Willinsky puts current debates over intellectual property into context, asking what it is about learning that helped to create the concept even as it gave the products of knowledge a different legal and economic standing than other sorts of property.

Through conversations with my advisor and people in the STS Honors Program, I shifted my thesis to a more nuanced puzzle: we have so much neuroscience research that shows young adults are still developing, so why is 18 still the hard-line boundary for criminal responsibility? Why has the science not merged with the law?
