Narahari Rao: Concept of University (2014)

Author: Narahari Rao

Titel: Concept of University

Publication: Pragmata: Journal of Human Sciences, Vol. 2. Issue 2, June 2014, pp. 13-25


Concepts are instruments meant to fulfil two functions:
– as means of understanding what is passed on from the past as historically accomplished, and
– as means of accomplishing the new, for example, as means of construction of new institutions; Thus in the manner of my use even models are concepts.
I want to put forward the following thesis: At present both for understanding the genesis and structure of the university and for envisaging and shaping its future an organism-model is in use. My plea is to replace it with an interaction model, a model, I claim, that can serve the purpose much better.
