From Berlin to Bologna
in Humboldt and the modern German university

In most European countries the reform was realised without any notable opposition, but in Germany the Bologna process gave rise to heated discussions in the public sphere. In this chapter, the early twenty-first-century Bologna process is linked to the Humboldtian tradition and to the overarching importance of that tradition in modern-day Germany. The chapter argues that it is possible to reconcile a critical understanding of the Humboldtian tradition with support for several of its fundamental ideas. An intellectual reflection over fundamental academic ideals has been at the centre of the investigation of the Humboldtian tradition's changing meanings in German history. This reflection is viewed from a perspective of intellectual history as well as of the history of knowledge. It has become an analysis of university history, both as related to distinct periods and with regard to changes over the long timeline.
