Al menos es alentador saber que en estas muy pequeñas e ignoradas localizaciones del mundo intentamos actuar buscando conmover el orden instituido.

Tenure is one of the last institutions surviving from Humboldt’s university, one of the last defences of academic freedom.

Mr Taylor appears not to understand that the problems he sees in the University emerge from the “competitive administration” introduced after 1945. Those that fail to understand that creativity comes from freedom (reference to Humboldt in The limits of state action) pretend to foster “creativity” by introducing even heavier chains.

The “fossil energy society” destroyed or extinguished carbon and petrol, the “knowledge society” is aimed at over-exploiting existing knowledge for profit, leaving behind a contaminated land were reason will not longer grow.

“The true end of Man, or that which is prescribed by the eternal and immutable dictates of reason, and not suggested by vague and transient desires, is the highest and most harmonious development of his powers to a complete and consistent whole. Freedom is the grand and indispensable condition which the possibility of such a development presupposes; but there is besides another essential,–intimately connected with freedom, it is true,–a variety of situations.”

“For it is the property of anything which charms us by its own intrinsic worth, to awaken love and esteem, while that which only as a means holds out hopes of ulterior advantage, merely interests us; and the motives of love and esteem tend as directly to ennoble human nature, as those of interest to lower and degrade it.”
Quotes from W v Humboldt.

A revolution that also has come to Sweden; the heart of social welfare.

Mohanty writes about this.
And Slauther & Leslie.
Peters & Besly aswell. (among others)
But only Mohanty adresses the rasified process (re-colonialization, capitalistic citizenship) at the corporate university.
What´s your opinion about that?
