University died. Viva … Contemporary University

Editor's note

Clichs. They make things easier and simplify processes. We cannot recognize that the clichйs have occupied our minds and begun to govern the reality by our hands.

In subtle spheres, like education and upbringing (be it education of a child or a whole nation), this process shows itself especially distinctively.

Trying to Understand University Western University died. It is difficult to believe in it, but it is the reality. But the history of University shows an unusual ability to get renewed and adapt to new conditions. It gives hope that a miracle will happen and a new University will appear. Inaugural lecture materials of the London University professor were used.

Intensive Education Programs: the Third Generation
This emerging type of education possibly has no immediate analogues neither in history of education, nor in contemporary mass high school or higher education, nor in alternative education practices... This form of education grew not from one united project but actually was gradually formed by multiple discussions, when many projects, ideas and positions interacted and cooperated .
