Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the development of our modern institutions of education and the driving forces behind this development. In the author's opinion the modernization of the university that started in the sixteenth century has reached its end and is entering the phase of post-modernization. The intensified globalization of scientific research is only one manifestation of this profound transformation. Nowadays one can only become a professor as an internationally acknowledged researchermeaning that one is appointed at the university on the basis of a list of peer-reviewed publications. In the authors opinion this tendency by which the postmodern university is gradually reshaped in the above-mentioned way is part of a cultural transformation that conceals a deep intellectual and cultural crisis of the postmodern Western world. In line with Hegel the chapter explores this crisis concerning the institutions of education and the postmodern university from a historical and dialectical point of view.

Keywords: cultural transformation; education; globalization; Hegel; postmodern university
