The Humanist Conception of the University: A Framework for Post-Modern Higher Education.
Aviram, Aharon
European Journal of Education, v27 n4 p397-414 1992
Five models of the university are examined: traditional (medieval); liberal (English); positivist (French); relativist (utilitarian); and humanist (German). The models exist on three conceptual continuums, focusing on the goal of the university and nature and function of science. It is argued that, despite erosion, the humanist model is most appropriate for the postmodern university. (MSE)
