Summary
  • This essay revisits Karl Jaspers' classic, "The Idea of the University." Jaspers was reinstated as president of Heidelberg University in 1945, and he presided over its rebuilding. His book, "The Idea of the University," written in 1946, was published in English 13 years later. It interprets an ideal of the university and emphasizes the purposes and responsibilities of institutions of higher education. The objectives of the university are identified as research, education, and instruction. To reach these objectives, scholars must communicate with each other and with students who, in turn, must communicate with each other. Jaspers is clear in his idea that universities need not incorporate all academic disciplines and all world outlooks, but the university must function as the"intellectual conscience" of an era and the meeting place of different disciplines and world outlooks.
