Bolotnikova E.N.


The contradictions between such categories as universal and individual, training and education, student and teacher can be resolved by changing the focus of the education system.

Humboldt’s university model in the contemporary world

Savvina O.V.


The article analyses the history of Humboldt’s university model and its relevance and effectiveness nowadays. Humboldt’s university model has been developed in the beginning of the 19th century by W. von Humboldt and widespread worldwide. Universities which were organized according to the model depended on a national state and interacted with it, benefiting the state’s culture and educational level of the population, developing scientific research. The model was criticizing during the 20th century, but many famous universities shared its values. B. Readings in his “University in Ruins” shows that Humboldt’s university model does not work anymore because of the decreasing influence of national states, growing significance of the global market and disappearing of national culture as phenomenon. The author argues that Humboldt’s university model has been restricted since Humboldt’s times but it is still the basic model of contemporary universities worldwide.

Ethics and professionalism in the contemporary university

Prokofyev A.V.


The paper analyzes the theoretical approach to academic ethics that explains its specific character using the notion of professionalism. If university is an organization uniting professional teachers rather than providers of educational services, than norms of academic ethics exceed the bounds of a diligent fulfillment of formalized job responsibilities. A professor has a considerable freedom as to how and what to teach and takes full responsibility for his/her professional decisions. A university administrator should find a way to reconcile a creative freedom of a professor with a coherence of academic curricula. Imperatives of academic ethics are aimed at establishing an optimal interaction of these key figures. This is a central thesis of conceptions developed by R. Weingartner and V.I. Bakshtanovsky.
