Abstract

The author of the article is aimed at reconstructing the concept of academic freedom as a base of university existence, regarding both its didactic and research function. The author takes into account various definitions of academic freedom and analyzes areas and dimensions, especially its institutional (university) and individual (professor) level. He reconstructs also controversies which are exposed in discussions on academic freedom and arguments regarding its limitations. He considers the phenomenon of actuarial policy and various forms of academic competition. He puts question: does the concept of academic freedom can be still vivid in the time of growing commercialization of didactits and research functions of contemporary university as well as its growing dependance on economy and politics?

Abstract

The article outlines the conceptual assumptions of pedagogy underlying university education, re-defined with regard to the dynamic conditions underlying contemporary culture. The authors concentrate on constitutive educational forms that define the nature of semiosis in education, as well as their exposure and transformation. In connection with this, there is a focus on the concept of “symbolic politics”, which aims to liberalize the practice of pedagogy, freeing it from the dictatorship of a transmission form of education, as well as creating conditions for strengthening discursive relationships and a reflexive discursive attitude. As a result of the implementation of this form of symbolic politics, those involved in education do not promote the prevailing discourse but become agents capable of discursive reflection in action as well as participants in processes of discursive design and creation.

Abstract

Louis Kahn, jeden z najwybitniejszych architektów XX w., uznawany jest za ojca współczesnych mikrobiologicznych kompleksów naukowych. Jego realizacje z końca lat 50. i 60. ubiegłego wieku stały się wzorcem dla późniejszych projektów laboratoriów mikrobiologicznych. Kahn w swoich realizacjach wprowadził dwie zasady: zasadę podzielenia funkcji na powierzchnie obsługujące i obsługiwane oraz zastosowanie otwartego planu w laboratoriach. Równocześnie wydzielił poziomy techniczne w celu łatwiejszego dostępu do instalacji technicznych. Jego obiekty są pełne symboliki, a zastosowanie surowych materiałów nawiązaniem do dialogu pomiędzy masą budynku i dynamiczną grą światła.
