Cultural and Linguistic Diversity in Higher Education
Molina, Fidel
Science Education International, v18 n1 p63-75 Mar 2007
The process of Bologna (European Space for Higher Education) has three fundamental nucleuses that are the European cultural diversity, the promotion of the exchange, and the knowledge among people of the different European countries. Neither the European dimension of the higher education nor the search of a system "easily comprehensible and comparable" of degrees are synonymous of homogenization. The debate is open about the Culture concept and the relationships among the diverse cultural groups; among tendencies to assimilation, to relativism, or miscegenation. The Intercultural socialization implies a contradictory and complex wide dialogue, many times, about the values and the norms in the social interactions of people. For this, we should reflect upon the universal thing and the particular thing, upon the importance of the cultural and linguistic diversity in the framework of Interculturality.
