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.

Writing an honors thesis was an exceptional opportunity to connect all the topics I had learn in class, and apply them into a year-long interdisciplinary research project, which is very closely related to technology entrepreneurship in consumer electronics. It was a way to develop skills and apply them in a very customized field of my choosing.
