|Summary||Philosophy of higher education is concerned with specific problems arising from the existence of universities and higher education institutions. Such problems include the specific aims of a university education, what are the differences between a university education and other (non)-formal aspects of education, the conflict between the faculties (or, in a more modern understanding, the hierarchy between academic disciplines), academic freedom, social mission of the university, the relation between teaching and research, Bildung, the (academic) crisis of the humanities, the production of knowledge, the kind(s) of thinking which university study leads to, the collective practice of study, education as a commons, the public role of the universities, neoliberalism in the academia, etc.|
