'Universitas?' Lecture, Part II
In our times, there are still educational institutions which call themselves universities. But do they still have a claim to universitas, the all-encompassing ideal of knowledge which the West inherited from Athens and Rome? In an unequalled indictment of the spirit of our times, George Steiner, world-renowned literary scholar and cultural critic, lectures modern universities. His criticism contains an exhortation to us all.
The lecture Universitas? is available in a bilingual edition the Nexus Library Series:https://www.nexus-instituut.nl/nexus-publications/nexus-library/37-universitas
