Abstract

SILVA, Franklin Leopoldo e. Universidade: a idéia e a história. Estud. av. [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.56, pp. 191-202. ISSN 0103-4014.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-40142006000100013.

THE TEXT intends to discuss some relevant views of the relation between university, as institution, and the social, historical and political context. On intend to demonstrate that university has always been affected by some kind of ambiguty of his historic position, nor completely inside, nor completely out of her historical time. This double position means that Church or State, as traditional powers, never get complete control, and university, in spite of institutional caracter, never did'nt resignate her difference or critic aproach, as we may note since the Middle Ages. The question we must actually discuss concerns the possibility of the same attitude in face of Market an his omnipresent power in our time.

Keywords : History; Society; Criticism; Autonomy.
