Abstract
In their contribution to the Festschrift in honour of Prof. Peter Maassen, the authors turn to one of the best-known concepts in the philosophy of education – Bildung – and posit that, contrary to some accounts, the concept is by no means obsolete. Linking the concept to the broader question of “What kind of university for what kind of society?,” the authors argue that this question, albeit political, should not be left to policy makers alone and invite the community of higher education researchers to take a more active role in shaping the global higher education discourse.
