Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of the Humboldtian tradition. Wilhelm von Humboldt's spirit hovers over the modern university. His name, or at any rate the principles that he is said to represent, is invoked across the world. It is now a little over two hundred years since Humboldt, as a leading Prussian government official, took the initiative in founding Berlin's university, often hailed as the first modern research university.

Keywords: Berlin; Humboldtian tradition; modern research university; Wilhelm von Humboldt
