When this classic volume first appeared, academic freedom was a crucially important issue. Hofstadter first describes the medieval university and how its political independence evolved from its status as a corporate body, establishing a precedent for intellectual freedom that has been a measuring rod ever since. He shows how all intellectual discourse became polarized with the onset of the Reformation. The gradual spread of the Moderate Enlightenment in the colonies led to a major advance for intellectual freedom.

In countries without democratic traditions, academic freedom may be unreliably granted and unevenly distributed. In communist countries in the 20th century, when academic freedom did exist at the university level, it was usually in such fields as mathematics, the physical and biological sciences, linguistics, and archaeology; it was largely absent in the social sciences, arts, and humanities. At the end of the 20th century, academic freedom seemed strongest in Europe and North America and weakest under various dictatorial regimes in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
