This work focuses on the university, one of the fundamental institutions in the construction of that fabulous social engineering that we call modernity. Although it precedes the rise and development of modernity, it is in this period when it reaches hegemony and legitimacy, which, according to the author, are in crisis.
Also, the work presents a reflection on what happened, in these new times, with the university institution, the great global changes and the possibilities that are opened from them. It is a very interesting proposal and a challenge for those who have dedicated a large part to university work.
These pages reveal how public universities have become commercialized, after becoming a profitable service and transnationalizing as a university market. In addition, it offers a critical reading of the key ideas that are used as progressive arguments to carry out the aforementioned changes: the knowledge and information society.
