PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF UNIVERSITIES
Heller voices her pessimistic view on the decline of the university system worldwide. Starting from the deﬁnition of the term “Bildung” by Hegel, she gives a brief outline of the history of higher education through the centuries, and shows how class divisions are still an important factor in modern universities. The ever-increasing role of bureaucracy has also a negative impact on the quality of teaching and learning, undermining creativity and the development of talents.
