Ideen und Realitäten von Universitäten

Edited By Marc Fabian Buck and Marcel Kabaum

Dieser Band versammelt aktuelle Bestandsaufnahmen, historische Befunde und Kontroversen zu Universitäten und anderen higher education institutions (HEIs). Dabei wird nicht die Differenz zwischen einer Idee und deren gern konträr dargestellter Realität thematisiert – oder gar bedauert. Ideen und Realitäten steht vielmehr für die zeitliche und räumliche Diversität eines systematisch vergleichbaren Konzeptes.
Die Beiträge betrachten die jeweils spezifische Ausformung aus nationaler, kritisch-funktionaler bzw. ideengeschichtlicher Perspektive sowie ihre Funktionen, ihre (narrative) Idee oder die Kritik an Hochschulen.
